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.

Happy New Year!

Dancing Baby Groot
(11x14", Oils on Stretched Canvas)    
Price: $450.00  SOLD

So, the New Year is usually portrayed as an infant....I decided to paint Baby Groot from the movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. Groot as an adult is equally endearing as a badass adult tree person as he is a swiftly growing twiglet and baby tree. Many artists have depicted Groot since the movie came out, and I couldn't help but join the bandwagon. So here is my New Year infant: a rather impressionistic version of 'dancing baby Groot' who happens to have supplied his own disco lights, ie. glowing seed pods while he bops away to Peter's 'Awesome Mix No. 2' cassette...

The usual palette and brushes were involved...and no trees were hurt in the making of this painting, although Baby Groot got a little ticklish when I was painting his tummy... Ahem.

Hope your 2015 is bright with promise and prosperity, love and goodwill.
