Our current 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle is titled “Pride of Annapolis” by artist Carol Dyer. Carol is an accomplished painter of early American traditions. Authenticity and meticulous attention to detail are trademarks of her paintings, which celebrate the different aspects of American life at the turn of the century. She often remarks, “one should read my paintings like a book.” Carol began her artistic career painting signs for friends and neighbors who enjoyed her unique folk art designs. A close examination of her paintings show her continued enjoyment for signs. They are sprinkled throughout each of her major works, on the sides of old trolleys, decorating an old-fashioned popcorn vendor’s wagon or identifying the shopkeeper’s wares for sale. A happy, energetic, person, these attributes are reflected in her colorful, sunny images of a Victorian era long gone.
