Aloha ,



I hope you had a fabulous 2014 and welcome to 2015. Last year was a busy and fun one for us with the release of two new books: Honu and Hina and Mom's Love Letters from the Master. This year I am happy to announce the return of one of my favorite books: The Tale of Rabbit Island.

Our art tip this month is on the sometimes puzzling subject of naming your paintings.

The 2015 KAI Ocean Art Show opens at the new gallery in the Ching Young Village in Hanalei, Kauai, from February 2 to 28. Get a FREE Gicle'e with every online bid!

Patrick's 2015 Art Class Schedule is now available. Great time to sign up for a class before it sells out.


Our Favorite Photos never disappoint as we have some new and old memories to share with you.

Happy Reading,

Patrick Ching

- Great art tips
Hawaii Art Tip: Naming Your Painting -
When do you name your paintings? How do you come up with a name?

There is no right or wrong choice in selecting a name for your painting, but I'll share some of my experiences with you.

Most of the time I wait till the painting is finished before I name it. Somehow on the way to getting it photographed I come up with a catchy name (or I just ask the photographer).

In the case of the KAI Show, I need to come up with the ideas and names of the paintings first so that people can bid on the paintings before I complete them.

I tend to use one or two word titles, and because I have nearly 200 paintings I tend to have the first word in the title refer to the subject of the painting. I admit a big reason for this is so my own staff knows what painting I'm talking about. For example, I have many paintings of Sea Turtles (called Honu), so several of their titles begin with the word Honu, like Honu Kai and Honu Perspective.

Another important consideration is the way the words tumble off the tongue. This is important because if it is easy to say it will probably be spoken more often.

Holding a contest is a fun and engaging way to get your painting named, and just as important, start some excitement about the process. I've gotten some good names like this including Shearwater Moon and Blue Canoe.

There's my take on naming your artÉWhatever you call it, do it smart!

Mahalo from Nyla! - Yee-Ping Cho - Date - 1/10/2014

We stopped by your studio about three weeks ago as our Kauai vacation was drawing to a close. Our daughter, Nyla, had a lovely visit with you. Here is a photo that we took that day thanks for taking such good care of her. She brings the Hina book everywhere and tells anyone who will listen all about her visit with you. You made a big impression!

Fernando Rueda Izagirre - Date - 11/6/2013

I got today the matted prints. I have no words to express my feelings... I just order another two sets of prints. They will also be for Kelea and Mikel and I will be very grateful if you could also personalize these prints for them. I will frame all the matted prints and give them to the kids for Christmas (I have to hide them until then!). I'm sure they will love them so much. Read more of this testimonial & view image
