Last week my folks sent me this little puzzle for my birthday. I was completely obsessed with it until I solved it. I spent every spare moment shuffling tiles or trying to figure out strategies for shuffling tiles. I got fairly close quickly, but when it got down to 2 or 3 tiles out of place it became maddening. Part of it was not knowing the final picture...and this painting made it confusing. I'm not sure if my folks sent it because they thought I would enjoy it, or knew it would torture me. I'm still not sure which happened, but I'm glad it's over. Thanks though, folks! (I wanted to get this snapshot before I scramble it and give it to someone else so they can have the "fun" of solving it. :) Here's a better image
of the painting.
