I just updated the map for locations we've traveled to through the Virtual Paintout. I post links to each month's blog post, along with total number of submissions. Much to my surprise it says this map has been viewed 310,925 times. Wow!

Blue Shed and Forsythia
Did this one in New Harmony's First Brush of Spring plein air event this past week. Since I didn't place in the competition, it's very easy to second guess the choice of which painting to enter. I keep thinking this is the one I SHOULD HAVE entered. Might n...

Story

I paint.
Introduction
Bill Guffey is a self-taught artist working mainly in oils with brushes and palette knives. Now living in his native Kentucky, with detours through Colorado, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Bill strives to bring life to his landscape and urban paintings. He tries to convey the feeling to the viewer that made him stop and paint what was before him.

Bill enjoys painting from life, either en plein air or in the studio, and works from photographs he has taken. Bill's love of painting outdoors from life is what gives him the most pleasure. Fighting off bugs, animals and reptiles (picture of Indiana Jones here), while enduring extreme heat in the summer and frigid temperatures in the winter, add to the character of both the artist and the artwork. The most fun for Guffey is the ability to paint on location and the conversations he has with other artists, curious onlookers and collectors. Bill has an incredible sense of being blessed beyond measure.
