THE NAKED BRUSH
ORIGINALLY A THRILLING RIDE IN WHICH THE ARTIST, TERRE RYBOVICH, GAMBLED HER OWN TIME, MONEY AND GOOD NAME TO VISIT DOZENS OF GALLERIES IN NORTH AMERICA WITH THE AIM OF EXHIBITING AND SELLING HER LARGE CHARCOAL DRAWINGS. NOW THE RIDE TAKES US EVEN DEEPER, INTO THE HEART OF THE ARTIST'S CREATIVE PROCESS, INCLUDING ART-MAKING, WINE AND MUSIC.

INCLUDING COLOR

It’s a different sort of tour these days. Touring the borders of my capabilities and comfort zones—expanding my charcoal drawings to include color—instead of touring North American cities.

My determination to find additional gallery representation for my drawings endures. And yet this economy makes it tough. Of the nearly one hundred galleries I visited in seven cities, I found about 25 that were interested in considering my work. Soon after my visits I submitted images to each of them. A couple wrote back to decline. Most didn’t respond. Ultimately half of them closed their doors. And the other half are slow getting back to me.

My sister Cindy is quick to remind me that it’s too soon to draw conclusions about my 2008 tour. Ars longa vita brevis? I guess we’ll see.

Back to the drawing board, where color is the big challenge. Here are two very different results.

Color Grid 1 (left), from last year, is my first attempt with color and my first acceptance into the Boca Raton Museum’s All Florida show. It’s powdered charcoal and pigment on paper.

Formative (right) is months in the making and very recently completed. It’s charcoal and pastel on paper.
