The Virtual Paintout is in Valparaiso, Chile this month, and I had some difficulty finding a really great view on Google Streetview. After some maneuvering, I finally came upon this appealing composition – more of a design than a landscape, really.  Here’s a link to it.  
It reminded me of a painting I wrote about in 2011 after a river cruise in Europe.  That painting was heavily influenced by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, so I let him have a go at Puerto Valparaiso as well.  


  1. Very successful, Charlene. I like it very much.

  2. LOVE IT. I'm having a hard time finding a scene I like, everything is so close to the camera :-) This is fabulous.
