Artist Bill Guffey Uses Google Street View

Bill Guffey is an artist born in Kentucky, where he now resides, with passings through Colorado and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Member of the Oil Painters of America, he was awarded a grant through the Kentucky Arts Council and was accepted into the All Kentucky Juried Fine Art Exhibition 2008.
Using Google Street View, Bill paints views from around the world, including european and north american cities. In fact, the artist has recently finished a series of one painting from each state, with the exception of Hawaii where Street View is not available yet.
The artist is also an author of the Virtual Paintout blog, to which artists can submit their Street View based artworks.
The online version of the Daily Mail has an interesting article where you can compare Bill's paintings with the virtual views.
