Ms. Nacol selected 3 Curators' Choice nominees for November, (starred dates in the list): 1* The Beach (watercolor) by Emily Stedman of New York, NY; 4* Marysol I (drawing|graphite|mixed media) by Victoria Coyle of South Wales, United Kingdom; 19* Marlo Lost in Stripes (pastel) by Jean Marcellino of New York, NY. Barebrush founder and CEO, Ilene Skeen, commented,
This November calendar highlights the continuing theme of the vulnerability of the nude: in The Beach, we view an engagingly erotic relationship with some uncomfortable uncertainty. In Marysol I, we feel the fragility of the closed figure, arms wrapped around legs, eyes shut, dreaming of another world, while in Marlo Lost in Stripes, we find the figure displaying an open-eyed acceptance of vulnerability with a quiet pride.
