Virtual Painting through Google

Just when I thought the iPhone/iTouch had something amazing to offer artists with the amazing apps
available I come across this website of paintings done of views found through Google Street Maps (Virtual Paintout).
I have only started to explore the resulting paintings but stopped to admire Anne Campbell's
paintings.   Her paintings are of images taken of famous department stores in New York and her version
of these are slightly abstracted.  They were absolutely wonderful so I picked Saks Fifth Avenue to explore.
This is the screen shot I took of the result of this search.  Can you imagine the street scenes available to us now?
