BILL GUFFEY: Hi, I'm Bill, and I use
Google Street View to paint different locations
from around the world.
I'm from Burkesville, Kentucky, a small town
of about 1,500 people, and I've lived here all my life.
My wife wanted a painting for our foyer,
so I bought some paint, brushes, canvas.
The painting was not good, but my wife did like the painting.
[LAUGHS]
After painting around my hometown for a while,
I turned to Google Street View.
And through Street View, I could explore the world.
It was an infinite reference library.
I grabbed the little peg man, and I
dropped him at the location and looked around
for things that inspired me.
And it's just like you're walking up and down the street.
I thought that other artists might enjoy it also,
so I created the Virtual Paintout.
I invite other artists to use Google Street View,
go to a location that I've chosen.
They draw or paint something, and I post it on the blog.
There have been over 6,600 submissions to date.
This month, we're painting in Amsterdam.
Next month, who knows where we'll go?
Was that all right?
One of those OK?
