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 62

Brandy Tea Roses
(4x5", Oil) $150.00 SOLD
Here is an0ther early tea rose painting - the same vintage as the ones from Day 61. I've been having some battles with inspiration lately, and finding myself blocked somewhat. Dental problems and busy business stuff, notwithstanding. We're going to Japan next month, so I'm hoping to get some fresh input from the new surroundings.
Unfortunately, the image here doesn't do the painting justice. The background is lush smoodges with some of the orangey background showing through, matching the warm shadowy areas of the roses. I really enjoyed the looseness of painting this little thing. The oil paint did its legendary blending thing on the canvas that makes painting in this medium like no other in my experience.
