Virtual Paintout Smackdown

Well, I sucked it up and decided to enter the Virtual Paintout for Lisbon this month!  Nothing like waiting until the last minute, but what else is new?  For those of you who haven’t heard of it, this is the website where you can enter art work created using Google’s street view for inspiration.  Any medium can be employed, but the subject has to be something that can be viewed on the street view of the city of the month which has been selected by fantastic artist Bill Guffney. 

As I said, this month it was Lisbon, Portugal.  I’ve never been there, but after “driving” down its streets and looking at many, many buildings, I can tell you I feel like I’ve been there—minus the jet lag and the weight gain from what I’m sure is wonderful food. 

So, here’s a sneak peek of my offering.  Please go to the website and check out the terrific art work from the other great artists. 

I want to be just like them when I grow up. 

You can click on each of the art works for an enlarged, closeup view.  Enjoy!
