The location of the Virtual Paintout for March 2014 was Slovenia. Bill Guffey created the Virtual Paintout and chooses the month's paintout location from cities or countries the Google Street View vehicles have covered. Artists submit their paintings online to Bill and he posts all of them on Facebook and the Virtual Paintout blog. It's always a lot of fun to see what views other artists have found, and of course there are a variety of styles and media.
I didn't know what to expect to see in Slovenia. It turned out to be a beautiful part of the world to look around. The portion of the capital city of Ljubljana that I saw looked very attractive and tourist-friendly. Lots of pretty bridges and side-walk cafes. Since I was looking for something to paint, the many colorful old buildings caught my eye, so I tried two small street scenes. I'm anxious to see what the April location is.
