Include a brief description* of your art (for example: 10"x12" portrait, oil on canvas)
Write a SHORT SENTENCE that will appear as the TAGLINE* when someone clicks on your image/art in the gallery.
Tip for TAGLINES: an interesting or odd bit of information that says something about you or your art—but that does not reveal your name or identity. (for example: INSPIRED BY THE SEA, BUT NOT A STRONG SWIMMER). A tagline can also be a favorite quote or a question your art poses.
If your artwork is visibly signed, you may choose to physically cover the identifying mark before taking photos, or crop or blur it afterwards by editing the photo. This step is optional, not mandatory.
* inclucing a description and TAGLINE in the body of your email is optimal but NOT required.

LOOK FOR YOUR IMAGES IN THE GALLERY
Every Tuesday, we'll unveil a fresh batch of art. Look for images submitted on or before Sunday to appear in the gallery the following Tuesday. On the same day, we will announce the Tuesday ToDoodle, a word, topic or question you can use as inspiration for your next submission. (This is completely optional. You are of course always free to submit art inspired by whatever strikes your fancy.) Sometimes we post art in the gallery on other days of the week as well, so be on the lookout for new work to appear at any time.
WE WILL NOT REVEAL YOUR IDENTITY
Your privacy is our priority. This entire platform is built around the idea of anonymity in creativity. Your name will not appear on the site. Your email address will not appear on the site. Learn more.
REMOVING METADATA FROM YOUR IMAGES
To further protect your privacy, we use a one-step process to remove detectable EXIF data from your images before posting them to the gallery. If you wish to remove EXIF data before you upload them to the gallery, you are free to do so. A quick GOOGLE search will give you more information about removing EXIF data from your images.
IMAGE SIZE and RESOLUTION
The ideal size for image submission is approximately 300-900 pixels, with an average 72 dpi. Learn more.
