Spot On

Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Grand Jatte
by Georges Seurat, Art Institute of Chicago.

Seurat did preparatory drawings everyday for six months getting ready to paint this picture of people relaxing on a day off. The style is called Pointillism and involves using color dots to create the image. Who knows how Seurat would have refined the style he invented if he had not died at the age of 32.

Happy Birthday, Mom!
