View Larger Map

You'll find an interactive map of Paris, France above, though you can't access the little yellow man from that map. So use the link below it "View Larger Map", and the map will appear on your monitor; drag the little Yellow Man onto the map, step into Paris, and start exploring. Find an interesting subject/area. Change it all you want. Or paint it straight up as you see it. Instructions are in the sidebar to the right. Any questions, ask 'em in the comments or email me directly.

Especially nice this month is the realization that Google has seen the potential in this challenge/blog/idea, whatever you wish to call it, and has given their okay for artists to use Street View as a reference for paintings that can then be sold without fear of copyright infringement.

Thank you to the Google Maps Team, the Google Street View Team, and all those involved. And thank you, artists, for participating.
