Artist Bill Guffey cant afford to travel to paint the ancient cathedrals in Rome or Maine seaside in person, so he visits the places online.
His Google Street View Painting Series features paintings of the most beautiful spots in the world which he was able to witness using Google Street View.
Guffey says he likes visiting the south of France and Maine the most through his computer and would love to actually go to the places hes immortalized in oils in person someday and paint them again.
He says, Id like to see if theres a difference.
Guffey believes all artists, particularly those who are disabled, can benefit from using Google Street View for their work because it really opens up the world to artists that are stuck in their homes or hospitals.
