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.

New Exhibit!

After much waiting, and then toing and froing about whether I had the energy to sort out enough artwork for this little exhibit, I finally got my act together and this is the result.

Last year, my hubby and I agreed to a month each of showing artwork at a great little coffee shop at Pawtuxet Village. Bob got January of this year, but I had to wait until now - September. In the meantime, we've just come back from a hectic three week trip across the country which involved the setting up and taking down of artwork in two locations, and getting ready for a larger, more prestigious exhibit at The Art Corner in Salem, Massacheussetts at the end of September. Ugh. Not only was I low in energy, but wondering how the hell I was going to pull together enough existing paintings for not one, but TWO shows. I juggled lists of paintings for two days, dug said paintings out of cupboards and off of walls, and I finally had enough. I did wonder what was going to be the main anchor painting for the coffee shop show as the two I was considering were offsite at a friend's house, and he was away for the week. Pottering around, I found one large one I'd forgotten about - probably because I'd never been completely satisfied with the finished product and have every intention of repainting. This was "Marina" my Mermaid/Unicorn piece: you can see it above the mantle in the photo. So I finally had enough to fill the wall. There's a lot of older stuff there from recent years, but it seems to work as a collection. What would really be nice now, is for some of these works to find a nice caring home, otherwise it's back into the cupboard.

The show itself is at:
Little Falls Cafe
2166 Broad Street
Cranston, RI 02905

More soon,

WOW!!! I didn't realize this was you...I remember seeing your work at Little Falls! I've showed there a couple times in the past year. Have you seen the new set up for hanging paintings in there now?
