The Early Bird

 San Diego, CA- by Nop Briex
1000 x 1000 mm -Oil on Canvas

Link to Street View
Nop Briex, from the Netherlands has been busy being our first entry, and for good measure, he's our second entry too.  Now what is he going to do all Summer?  These paintings are great, but I might suggest that he go looking for the REAL San Diego.  I was just there, and the beaches and boardwalks are very nice! I guess this view does show yet another side of the city. Love the brushwork. 

Here is Nop's second entry.  Once again, I love the brushwork employed in these paintings.

Link to Street View

I didn't embed the Street Views, as they are from Google in the Netherlands.  You don't have to translate them to see the image, but I couldn't get the embed code to work on my blog.  So do take a look at the Street View links and feel free to travel on from there.  

Find something you like and start painting !!!

Thanks for visiting.  Come back to see the new paintings as they come in.  No voting will be taking place yet. That will likely be towards the end of July.  I'll let you know.

FINALLY a New Contest for Summer

Quick Facts:
Kay has been very lazy (well . . more sad than lazy, but that's the nature of my life) I must use what I have to feel better and the Street View Paint Off is one of those tools.  So at a moments notice on a late May day, I decided to just DO IT!!!

The result is a new contest . . . a little different (to accommodate my current nature) so it should be easier for ME :)

Time Frame - 60 days (or June and July)
Boundaries - EARTH (anywhere the Google Truck has been)
Number of entries allowed: 2 p/artist
Number of $250 winners: 2

Entry can be made via email to  Kay Zahn (see the tab for entry) because I'm going to try and NOT use the Wildfire Application, but I still need the information so check the tab for the details required to enter.

Thanks so much to everyone who waited around for me to feel like playing again!!!!  I really do appreciate it.
