You'll find an interactive map of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania above, though you can't access the little yellow pegman from that map. Use the link on the upper left of, or below, the map, "View Larger Map", and the map will appear on your monitor; drag the little Yellow Man onto the map, let go while he's over a blue area, 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.
IGNORE THE BLUE DOTS! Google has added every user submitted photograph to the maps in the form of blue dots. Make sure your reference comes from the actual Street View application and not a photograph. Thanks.
Also, each artist must include the URL of the location that the artwork is based upon. To find the URL is easy. In the maps mode, while looking at your scene you have chosen, click the "LINK" button at the top LEFT of the screen, check the "Short URL" button. With that link highlighted simply copy it and paste into your email with your submission. (How do you not lose your location? Click "SEND" with your view up and email it to yourself.)
Below is another option for getting a short URL. If you use Google Chrome browser, install the short URL app. Makes it really easy to grab a short URL from any page you are on.
So there you go. Should be extremely easy. If your submission doesn't show up on the blog, please check the list near the top in the sidebar entitled, "Don't see your submission? This could be the reason..." Thanks.
And thank you, artists, for participating.
Remember, participation is open to all levels of artistic ability.
NOW LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!
