Welcome 2021: New Art Calendar & Art Videos, "Talking Art of the Day"

  You enjoy art more when you look at art like an artist

Barebrush announces the January 2021 Art of the Day calendar. In 2020, COVID19 shut down most art venues. Barebrush produced 100+ short videos, "Talking Art of the Day." Ilene Skeen, Barebrush founder, shares her methods and tools for looking at art. New art video each day.

If you're tired of COVID, politics, and winter, you're not alone. For the New Year, make a resolution to have lunch with art. Watch a few short videos with your soup and sandwich. The soup to warm you up, the sandwich to fill you up, and the art to make you smile. You'll enjoy art more when you look at art like an artist.

In each art video, Ilene follows a simple method answering 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. She welcomes comments and questions.

Barebrush starts the New Year with a fine art photograph. Natural Beauty, an inspiring nude in a vista of desert spires by Peter Wong King (NM). Peter’s video playlist link is Congratulations, Peter.

Kudos, also to Peter Le Grand of Chicago for the Most Watched Video of December, "Nude Woman Keeping It Together: Talking Art of the Day"
