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.

And Another Exhibit...The Art Corner

This October, Bob and I are back at The Art Corner in Salem, MA. Wendy and Chuck are busy with three other exhibits and have given us the run of the shop/gallery space. Wasn't that really, really nice of them? Below are photos of my bit of the wall space. The three bigger paintings are older ones that I've trotted out as anchor points, but the rest are from my painting a day project from last year - some of which have never been exhibited before. I was waiting for a very special show to put them up. This is it! My total is 23 pieces...

We are having a Grand Opening of our exhibit on Friday, 3rd October 2008, so if you're in the area, please drop in and say hi. It'll be a bit of a party as it is also Bob and my 1oth wedding anniversary. Details below:

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

More soon,
