Daub du Jour

My name is Marianne Plumridge. I am an artist of mythic fantasy works and fine art images. More of which can be seen at my website, 'MariannePlumridge.com', and also my main Blog, 'Muse du Jour'. These sites are in the links section of this page. This site began life as a painting a day blog in 2007. However that project has now passed, but I still find myself painting in that way. So this site will now be the showcase my new paintings as inspired by those previous efforts.

Day 53

Mini Magnolias
(5x7", Oil) SOLD

Since I've been a bit distracted lately with business, I haven't been painting as much. I'm about to remedy that today. However, while waiting for paintings to dry again, I thought I'd put up this older painting. At the beginning of the month, I donated this little piece to the Alzheimer's Charity Benefit Art Show at Spring Bull Gallery in Newport, Rhode Island. The show is run like an auction, and I'm pleased to find that the bids on it are now over $200. At 4pm tomorrow, the final bids will be taken. The money raised will be donated to the Rhode Island Alzheimers Association.
The gallery allowed each artist who donated something to put in an extra painting to sell for themselves. Bob's extra painting sold on opening night. I'm hoping that his replacement one and my little pansy painting might have attracted buyers as well. It always feels good when you sell something, but even better when the money goes to a good cause.
Cheers until tomorrow
