Billy Hassell: Crossing the Rio Grande

Sold out
$24.99 CAD

Billy Hassell (American, b. 1956) Crossing the Rio Grande, 2018

Elevated above the expansive canyon, the dramatic patterning of the golden-fronted woodpecker takes center stage amidst a vibrant array of cactus flowers, black-eyed Susans, and Texas bluebonnets.  Billy Hassell, captivated by the wild places near his Texas home since his schoolboy days, expresses his profound connection to nature through his art.  His bold and beautiful work, Crossing the Rio Grande, showcased on this 500-piece jigsaw puzzle, offers a bird's-eye perspective that transports you to the serene plateaus in the distance.

Referred to as "Mother Nature's stylist" by the New York Times, Billy Hassell's vivid paintings are masterful studies of stylized naturalism deeply rooted in a sense of place.  As an artist and conservationist since childhood, Hassell's early explorations around Dallas led him to observe and draw creatures like lizards, carrying them home in his pockets.  His fascination extended beyond their existence to their patterns and colors.  Mirroring the vibrant natural world, Hassell's paintings exude energy balanced by moments of stillness.  He invites viewers to pause and venture into the wild, influenced by his travels, while still calling Texas home.

Throughout his career, Hassell has supported conservation-related organizations such as Audubon Texas, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and the Big Bend Conservancy through limited-edition lithograph series.

Meticulously crafted and intricately designed, Pomegranate's 500-piece jigsaw puzzles seamlessly blend exceptional colour reproduction, captivating and unique images, and robust construction.
