In February, time doesn’t march on — it waltzes in with hot chocolate.
January was cold, even in Florida, but Barebrush is hot. “Talking Art of the Day” videos zoomed +188% in views, and +76% in watch time.
Ilene Skeen thanks all Barebrush artists for their participation and enthusiasm. Special shout out to Tony Lee of Panama. His fine art photo, “Columpio” (Swing) broke video records. Here’s the easy link: barebrush.video/NudeOnLimb. To conform to YouTube community guidelines, the video is marked 18+.
February 2021 Art of the Day calendar and videos start Monday, February 1st. The sculpture, “What the World Needs Now is Love” is by Massachusetts artist, Robert Markey. Mr. Markey’s videos are in this playlist: barebrush.video/RobertMarkey.
The “Art of the Day” Method
In each art video, Ilene follows a simple method to answer three questions: What do you see? Who’s the artist? What’s the point? To answer these questions, Ilene creates a narrative of specific details. Then she looks at what the artist says about the work. Finally, she teases out a point. The videos are fast and fun, averaging under 3 minutes. Ilene welcomes comments and questions.
The Barebrush Art of the Day calendar
February features 28 contemporary artworks in photos, oils, watercolor, mixed media, and sculpture. On the Art-of-the-Day calendar page, you can see the current calendar art revealed over time.
