I love participating in the Virtual Paintout each month. Bill Guffey hosts and chooses the monthly location based on cities the Google Street View vehicles have covered. Bill posts the submissions on his blog and on Facebook. For March 2015 we traveled to Greenland for our paint-out views. Another place I will never see in person! The world's largest island, Greenland is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. Under 60 thousand people live there. As much as I had time to look around, I didn't see any trees or animals. According to Wikipedia the most significant inhabitant is the group of microbes that colonize cryoconite (windblown dust) that contributes to rapid glacial melting. Hmmm. Of course there were some beautiful views of the ocean, islands, and several harbors. I had no trouble finding two subjects to paint.
