Still Accepting Submissions for 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Posted by on Sep 19, 2011

Shelby is fast at work on her first of the “30 Paintings in 30 Days.”Shelby is still looking to her fans for visual inspiration. Her approach is to paint the figure in an urban landscape but she needs some extra photos to choose from.

Send your photos to, but first, Shelby has some criteria she would like you to follow.

Example of an ideal submission

The theme here is “People in Urban Landscapes.” So please try and follow the following criteria.

1. People focused yet in an urban setting – Being figurative, the people are the subject but they will not be painted in any detail with no telling identifiers. (ie people walking down the street, people talking at an intersection, or people enjoy coffee on a cafe patio

2. Urban Landscape – Looking at Shelby’s previous work, you can see the talent she has in painting urban architecture. So see if you photo can include some buildings or city skyline in the background.  Ideally it would be best if it were kept regional to Milwaukee.

3. Please do not submit photos of posed people in front of landmarks or backgrounds.  The people aren’t the direct focus, they are just part of a whole.

4. Please remember to include your name and email in the submission, so if Shelby chooses one of your images, we can get you your keepsake image.

So send in your pictures to and help provide some inspiration to Shelby and as a thank you, if she selects one of your photos to paint, she’ll also provide a digital print that you can have as a keepsake.

Good luck everyone, we can’t wait to see the submissions.
