I decided to take the Street View Paint Off challenge. An email came through about it from The Art List. The challenge is to paint a Google Street View image of Arizona by the end of October.  The winner receives a $250 Visa gift card.  

Today I found a printer who can make large format Giclee prints.  It's called Warp 9 Imaging, located on Ray Street in the art district of the North Park neighborhood of San Diego.  My experiment will be to have a high-gloss Giclee of Royal Food Mart laminated to Gator Board.  I hope this creates a similar look to the far more complicated resin coating process I have been investigating.   If it looks good, this is what I will submit to the William D. Cannon Art Gallery's 2011 Juried Biennial show.  Cash prizes will be awarded here too.  The jurors will be Peter Frank, Senior Curator at Riverside Art Museum and Larry Baza, of Noel-Baza Fine Art in the Little Italy neighborhood of downtown San Diego. The show runs January 29, 2011 through March 18, 2011.
