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.

The Story of Nick Paper

The surface that these drawings are done on are something we call 'Nick Paper'. Handtinted drawing paper that takes Prismacolor pencil work really well. To find out how 'Nick Paper' came about, and its connection to September 11, 2001 - go to my other blog, http://musedujour.blogspot.com/ and read the full story...

Hi Gretel!!

Thanks! And Ta for stopping by. :-D

I stop by and read your blog on a regular basis: it's so wonderful. :-D I'm behind in commenting, though. Between jetlags at the moment. Back from Japan Friday week ago, and we're off to England next Wednesday. Torquay for four days, and then London for some business for three. Then home to collapse. :-D

Hope you're doing well.

PS: Love your sad little rabbit.

Loving the paintings, Marianne - in this and previous postings. I particularly respond to the little elephant and all the roses.

Thanks, Rosemary!

This seems to be my path now. I still seem able to do the odd nature fantasy piece, but am leaning towards quirky still lifes - with or without toys and pumpkins - and wildlife or nature paintings. Usually all small. :-D
