The Manitou Springs Heritage Center is delighted to offer their second Manitou Springs Jigsaw Puzzle. Painted by local artist Jared Thompson, the painting gives an artistic rendering of Manitou Springs with some of the key historic features emphasized.
A combination of maps and imagination were used to set the layout of the town in a fantastical manner which encompasses the west end of Manitou Springs and the surrounding canyons, mountains, and trails. The detail is remarkable. The final piece of artwork came to life through a multiple step process. Some of the details are so fine that to adequately capture them Thompson painted neighborhood objects such as houses, trees, rocks, and bushes outside the primary canvas and used computer graphic software to shrink and overlay them onto the artwork. Thompson has lived in Manitou Springs since 2014 and has volunteered his time as an artist and photographer on numerous occasions with the Manitou Springs Heritage Center, the Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses.
Not only is this a wonderful keepsake for yourself, it makes a wonderful gift for others.
