What the Month of May Brings

May begins with a deeply felt portrait, Mykoal - Late Afternoon by Dan Simoneau, ISAP, of Kenosha, WI. Dan is a Featured Artist at Barebrush. Dan’s vision captured Mykoal close up, his face bathed in light, and cast shadows. Mykoal looks calm but troubled. His hand against his chin, fingers arching toward us. We see pain and persistence.

The monthly display of art is a map of styles and subjects served for your enjoyment. Just click on the link at the end of this sentence and you will realize that all the art is revealed in time...


Barebrush showcases contemporary art. The monthly art calendars began September 2006. Thousands of artworks are available for your viewing pleasure. Over 1,000 artworks are priced to buy now. Art lovers may contact the artist directly or Barebrush can also act as agent between buyer and seller.

The goal of Barebrush is to delight art lovers in the variety, expertise and emotional impact of affordable art of all genres and media created by dedicated, contemporary art professionals. Online since 2006. All calendars are still accessible in the Barebrush Calendar Archives.
