12 x 9 ”  Acrylic on canvas

The Virtual Paintout has traveled to Newfoundland this month. This is an art challenge using Google Street View to paint or draw a chosen location - as if you were really there.  I found this neighborhood in St. John’s - a city right on the Atlantic coast - and knew I could have fun with the view. The street here is on such a slant that it seems like the houses must lean a bit, too. Then I thought how fun it would be for a kid on a skateboard to go flying down the hill. (You can see how the street slants here.) I hope the residents of Victoria Street will appreciate my bit of whimsy! 

The sides of this canvas are painted  with solid violet. It can be framed, but you could hang it up just as it is.
