Malinda Prud'homme's paintings that include real acrylic gems are among her fans favourite pieces. She receives frequent inquiries about prices but for many the cost of these time consuming and expensive paintings is beyond their budget. This is why Malinda decided to offer hand jeweled prints! So that those who really love that radiant sparkle paired with beauty portraiture can enjoy a piece of their own at a fraction of the cost. :)
SIZE: 8"x10" paper with a white border for easy framing/matting. It will easily slide into a standard 8 x 10" frame or matte.
SPECIFICS: These prints are reproduced from original paintings by Mixed Media Artist Malinda Prud’homme. They are printed in-studio on Supreme Satin photo paper which has a lovely weight, a flawless velvety smooth surface, is tear resistant, curl resistant, and fade resistant. The artist will adhere real acrylic gems to the print by hand. She will choose in the moment what gems to apply as the print is not completely covered. While she will NOT be copying the gem patterns exactly as seen in these images, she will stay true to the amount of gems portrayed. Prices will vary based on the amount and colour of gems. Every portrait comes with either the colours shown in the photos, all crystals, or crystals and aurora borealis (multicoloured shimmer - AB) crystals. You can make your selections using the drop down lists.
All prints are signed by the artist at the bottom of the print.
SHIPPING: The print will be sent in a 100% recycled hard cardboard Mailer.

"I decided it would be fun to get a mystery box from one of my favourite artists Malinda Prudhomme, so I did! I was really excited to open the box and see what goodies were inside! Malinda had taken the time to individually wrap each and every piece which added to the fun! The value of the mystery box far exceeded it's $35.00 purchase price!! Among the several items was a gorgeous print of one of her incredible beauties as well as a piece of her custom jewelry! I had a ball playing Malinda! Such a fun experience!!

Emergence & Rebirth
Art & Design District
Queen West, Toronto
February 2nd - 24th 2017
Opening Reception: February 02 2017
Taking part in this group exhibition was a really exciting achievement for me. TWIST Gallery is around the corner from my home and studio so I see it very often. I think it's pretty obvious but I'll say it anyways, it's GORGEOUS! I always got the impression it exhibited more established artists and it was a dream of mine to have my work on their walls. And what a dream come true it was! I felt so honoured to hang alongside the works of some of Toronto's most talented artists. It was truly a night to remember. :)

BIG ART BOOK 2017
Todmorden Mills Gallery
January 26 - February 05 2017
Opening Reception January 26 2017
It's been around 9 months since this happened and I'm still over-the-moon thrilled about it. I had been published in Scarborough Arts' BIG ART BOOK before back in 2014 and was even honoured with a Juror's Choice Award; a moment I still cherish. So getting three artworks into the 2017 publication was a delight ... but I was not prepared for the very great honour of being chosen for the cover. The theme for this issue was "Spectacular Celebrations" and they felt my piece embodied that well. Holding this beautiful book in my hands, with my bright beautiful painting "Cheeky Beauties" featuring the lovely Alyestal Hamilton on it, was an incredibly proud and happy moment. Another memory to cherish thanks to Scarborough Arts! :)

"Restless Mind ~ Beautiful Spirit"
Acrylic Paint on Bamboo Board
6.7" x 11.7"
This stunning portrait painting on a bamboo board is actually a revival and re-imagination of one of my older styles. Back in 2012 I created a series on bamboo board entitled "Restless In Wonderment". Two of the three pieces were damaged in a storm during an outdoor art show but the most beloved one remained perfectly intact. Over the years it was published in magazines and was even on a cover! But for some reason it never sold. Then during my Solo Exhibition in November 2016 it sold TWICE. A gentleman from out of town purchased it at the gallery as a gift for his niece's wedding; while I had taken a payment from a long time supporters father. It turned out the daughter had always loved the piece. I decided to create her one from scratch using my new techniques and skills. The piece depicts her as one of my Restless Beauties, being filled with an abundance of thoughts. I wanted the painting to exude a calm beauty while expressing her restless mind using colour and design in the background. It's our thoughts and our feelings that makes us the truly beautiful and unique beings we are.

Acrylic and Oil Paint on Canvas
11" x 14"
It has been almost a year since I worked on this beautiful heartwarming piece and it's meaning still makes me misty eyed. Diane contacted me a couple of years ago asking if I could take a photo of her deceased father and create a portrait of him as Santa. She explained that it was a cherished family memory, him dressing up every year for the holidays. I knew in my heart I had to take on the challenge. So much detail went into this cheerful Santa and I am beyond thrilled with the results. Diane ordered many prints for family members so it truly warms my heart knowing my artwork will bring so much joy to so many this holiday season and many more to come. :)

November Art Salon 2016
November 24th to December 4th 2016
Opening Night: November 24th 2016
That's right folks, I'm a YEAR behind in my posting! LOL Life has really gotten away from me this last year and I feel like I'm constantly chasing my tail. But despite being so behind I still want to share my special moments with you. This was my second time taking part in the November Art Salon and once again I really enjoyed myself. This time my friend and fellow artist Nadia Gurkova was also exhibiting in the show so we met up at the vegan restaurant Fresh to have a bite to eat beforehand. It was a really lovely night, the crowd was incredible, and I always love exhibiting at Gallery 1313. :)

Acrylic & Oil Paint on Wood Panel
12" x 16" / Each
This series hopes to capture women in a “cheeky” moment. More often than not, women in the media are portrayed with a rather calm or sultry expression or a soft smile. It is quite rare to see a woman being a goofball but oddly enough that’s when women are truly expressing their spirit. In my mind there isn’t anything quite like a woman who, in that moment, is comfortable being her adorable quirky self. My two beauties show different sides of their cheekiness with Alyestal being a ‘Silly Goose’ and Marie-Claude channeling her ‘Old Soul’. I hope the two colourful pieces bring a smile to your face. :)

HUGE EXCITING NEWS!!! I'M GOING TO BE ON TV!!!
Last year Apartment 11 Productions asked me to be their portrait specialist for their TVOKids television series The Mystery Files! How crazily amazing is that? Out of all the incredible Canadian portrait artists ... they chose me. I can't even begin to describe how overwhelming and touching that is.
It was last September when out of the blue I received a call from Ariel at Apartment 11 Productions asking if I'd be interested in being in an episode. I was floored. He went on to tell me that he had searched for the right candidate online and after a short while of watching a few artists' online presence, he knew I was the perfect candidate. He saw me as a highly talented portrait artist with a good heart and a good message; a good role model for children. Still to this day those words touch me. Soon I was speaking with their writer Claire and come November we were shooting the episode right in my neighborhood at the Gladstone Hotel where I had set up a rental studio. Everything was very surreal. I still can't believe it.
I'm definitely no actor and I'm terrible at remembering details, never mind lines! But the director, Kyla (one of the stars), and the whole filming crew were beyond kind and helpful. Very patient, very easy going, and super encouraging. They made me feel like I belonged there. I will cherish those memories forever.
I've waited all this time for the episode to air and it has finally come. This is a BIG MOMENT for me! I would love to share it with as many of you as I can. Please join in the excitement and watch my episode "The Mystery Of The Way We See". Kyla and I talk about the history of portraiture while we create portraits of each other! Grab all those beautiful babies of yours, furbabies, or just your beautiful self, and tune in to TVO Kids on Monday August 28th at 6PM! Don't forget to set your PVR!
I'm nervous. I'm excited. I'm grateful. I'm in denial. I'm proud. I'm terrified. I'm happy. I'm ... I'm ... I don't know what I am! :P

"The 20s Reborn"
Acrylic Paint, Oil Paint,
Crackle Paste, and Gems
on Wood Panel
12" x 16"
8" x 10" Prints:
Having painted and become friends with her sister, it was only natural that Janique St Laurent and I would become a part of each others online circle. What a blessing that was because she would soon post a picture that would inspire one of the most delicate, beautiful, and unique pieces I have ever created. In her photo she wore a lovely 1920s inspired headband and I couldn’t help but feel this gorgeous old soul with a passion for social justice embodied the spirit of the roaring era. With that in mind I decide to capture her beauty somewhat translucently to convey that this 20s spirit is being reborn into our modern world. A particularly special aspect of the piece is a sculpted antique frame that, like the portrait, seems solid but then becomes ghostly. Lastly the gems in the jewelry give the piece a dream-like sparkle. I’m an avid history lover, and the 1920s is one of my favourite eras, so creating this piece truly touched my soul.
