 How can I describe the wonder I felt the first time I saw my favorite painting, Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte?  I had admired the work for years in art books, but I never thought I saw Q16 the actual painting, which was housed in Chicago, many miles from where I lived.  I finally got my chance to Q17 when I met someone else who loved the painting as much as I did.  We both had three days off at the same time, so we decided to make a road trip to Chicago so we could see the painting in all it's Q18 grandeur.  We packed our bags, jumped in the car, and headed Q19 on our way toward Chicago. Q20
 The first thing that struck me as we entered the room where the painting was displayed; Q21 was the size of the painting.  A common size for canvases is 24 by 36 inches.  It was enormous!  It covered a large part of an even larger wall.  The painting's size amazed me since it was painted with dots, a technique called pointillism.  To create a painting of such magnitude using this technique seemed an almost impossible task. Q22  Seurat had done it, though, and had made it look easy! Q23
Even more impressive, however, was Q24 the beauty of the painting. Viewed from a distance, the colors looked muted, capturing the idyllic mood of a summer day in the park.

My friend and I saw many other sights, Q29 on our trip to Chicago, but the best part by far was being able to see our favorite work of art. The image is forever imprinted in my mind at the museum gift shop, Q30 even when I'm not looking at the souvenir print I bought.
