Virtual Paintout - Luxembourg!

It's hard to believe I've participated in the Virtual Paintout for over two years.  I love seeing parts of the world via Google Street View that I will never see in person.  Bill Guffey chooses a location for each month's Virtual Paintout.  Artists look around virtually for their view to paint, just as they would on a real life paint-out.  Pieces are submitted to Bill who posts all on his blog and on Facebook.  I wish we could revisit some cities that were monthly selections before I started participating.

The location for November 2014 was Luxembourg.  It looked beautiful there.  I wasn't able to spend more time browsing but I only saw one tiny bit of graffiti, something that always stands out.  As always I painted two small pieces.  Good practice, and having a deadline sometimes is a good thing.

  1. Both are wonderful! I like to visit places around the world via webcams and Google earth. I am really an arm chair traveler, I guess.
