Aloha ,



So much has happened since last we met. The KAI Ocean Art show (KAUAI) was held at The General Store of Hanalei Gallery and All of the paintings found new owners. I have 8 of new images posted online with a special 15% discount on Giclées until 5/15/2015 (links below).

Kai Ocean Show will be coming to Waikiki in July 2015.

There's a new mural at Lehua School on Oahu that was made in a clay and glass mosaic style.

One of my favorite books is back on the market this year: "The Tale of Rabbit Island" is an old Hawaiian story that I just made up!

I'm reshuffling my energy with a new lease at Patrick Ching Art Gallery in the Princeville center and a solid friendship with the artists of the General Store of Hanalei Gallery and Art School in the Ching Young Village in Hanalei.

The Kauai Artist Studio Tour was a great event and pictures from that and more of my favorite photos are at the end of this springtime newsletter.

Happy reading till we hui hou (gather again)!

Patrick Ching

ART TIPS
(Back to the top)
- Great art tips
Hawaii Art Tip: ART TIP - It's ALL of your Business -
Have you ever heard the saying "If it's not your genius, it's not you job!"
This refers to the logical idea that for you to help yourself and your company the best you should be doing things that you are great at and leave the other things to those who are great at those things. Makes sense.

Many artists take comfort in believing "I'm creative therefore I'm bad at business." They've convinced themselves that it is expected of them to be, unorganized, sloppy and poor. I believed this excuse for many years myself.

My message to you, if you want to be an artist for a living, or just keep living for a living, is: get to know the parts of your business that don't come easy for you. Work at those things so that even if you hire others to do them for you, you still understand what they are doing for you.

You'd be surprised at how fast you can learn things like Photoshop, book keeping, and tax preparation if you make up your mind and concentrate on learning them.
Your business IS your business. You are responsible for it. Get up and learn something new!

Now╔off to follow some of my own advice╔

KAI Ocean Art Show 2015 Sold Out -
It was an honor to hold the 2015 KAI Ocean Art Show at the new General Store of Hanalei Gallery in the Ching Young Shopping Village. Amidst the build out construction, ten new paintings came to life in the span of a month. All of the paintings were sold via an online auction and thousands of dollars from the show went to benefit the Kilauea Point Natural History Association.

My favorite part was getting to know the people of the Ching Young Village and the visitors that came enjoy the art as well. I look forward to having my art and art classes here in this place of sharing.

The picture above is of Thomas Jefferson (yes really!) and his ohana with their new original painting of "Hanalei Sunset". I even painted them into the picture! More...

Lehua School Mural by Hawaiian Artist Patrick Ching 2015




Over four years in the making, "Lehua Makani", a twenty eight by eight foot mural made of glass mosaic and ceramic sculpture, has finally come to life. This was my third large mural for the State Foundation on Culture and Arts SFCA Artist in the Schools program. The other murals are at the Salt Lake Public Library and Pope Elementary in Waimanalo. We all learn a lot by this program. It's like getting paid to go to school!

Mahalo to all who helped get it done: James LaRocco, Suzie Patner, Jojo Lyra, Courtney Puig, Joe Lyons, Kelly Morgan, Evelin Kekesi, Dean and Malone McRaine of Light Waves Studio, Leah K. Rigg, Thomas Dier, Dean and Letty of Ceramic Hobbiest, Joanna Carolan of Banana Patch Studios, Deborah and Jeff Pompadur of Evergreen by Debra, The Coy Long Tile company and the Crew at the SFCA.

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!

Mahalo.

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
