The Sweetheart Month: Barebrush February Art & Videos Waltz In

  Enjoy art like an artist. Grow your creativity muscle.
--Ilene Skeen, artist & founder

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 with special kudos to Tony Lee of Panama. His fine art photo, "Columpio" (Swing) broke video records. The easy direct link to "Nude on a Limb" (#9276) is: (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.

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 conteporary 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.

The past is history, and the future is open to the decisions we make and the life we grow.

Barebrush is the premiere ad-free, non-porn, fine art website.
Proving, since 2006, that it's OKAY+ to enjoy the art of the nude.


Barebrush art includes all visual media such as photography, painting, drawing, and sculpture. Founded in 2006. Daily Art of the Day videos began Sept 1, 2020. Artist and media inquiries welcome.
