Malinda Prud'homme Art MYSTERY BOX!!!




If you're a fan of Malinda Prud'homme's Artwork you will LOVE these fun MYSTERY BOXES!!! :)

BUY ON ETSY - (Starting at $25 CAD)
https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/580131978/malinda-prudhomme-art-mystery-box

Each mystery box will contain a random number of Malinda Prud'homme Art items with a value higher than what is paid. You could get one or more hand signed 8" x 10" Prints, Art Pendant Necklaces, Bookmarks, Magnets, and/or Postcards. What's the catch? The artist gets to choose the items based on your budget and you have no idea what you're going to get! Each item will be wrapped to make it extra fun! :)

The lovely Stephanie Walsh purchased a $35 Malinda Prud'homme Art Mystery Box and, like the awesome gal she is, video taped the process so I could share it with all of you!

TESTIMONIAL:
"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!! Thank you for sharing your beauties with the world!! Kindest regards, Stephanie Walsh"

Emergence & Rebirth
TWIST Gallery
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. :)

How To Make Oil Paint From Scratch




This video is pieced together from a LIVE Facebook Stream (www.FB.com/MalindaPrudhomme) where I attempted to make oil paint from scratch for the very FIRST time using gold pigments I bought in Cannes, France. :)

It was a great first experience but I can imagine things would have turned out better with different tools and more practice. If you happen to have any kind suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments. :)

BIG ART BOOK 2017
Scarborough Arts
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


restless mind, beautiful spirit, portrait, portrait painting, beauty art, purple hair, closed eyes, canadian portrait artist, toronto portrait artist, abstract art portrait, realism, bamboo painting

"Restless Mind ~ Beautiful Spirit"
November 2016
Acrylic Paint on Bamboo Board
6.7" x 11.7"
SOLD


8" x 10" Prints

Larger Prints



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.
