Aloha ,



Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my Friends,

I hope 2012 was wonderful for you. As you reflect on it I'm asking you to remember the successes you've accomplished and continue to build more greatness upon that.

In this newsletter I'll share: an art tip for those who want to be professional artists, my event/workshop schedule for the first half of the year, the plan behind my unique art show called KAI, I'll also give you all a heads up that the Kilauea Lighthouse is turning 100 years old next May. There are several events leading up to the celebration and one of them is a lighthouse art show that you can participate in.

Congratulations to teacher Kim Mah for her answer that "Fredrick" was the name of the mouse who gathered thoughts for the winter. She wins a round trip to Waimanalo from Kailua OR a thousand jumping jacks!

Thank you for sharing your valuable time with me while enjoying some art news from Hawaii. It's time to reflect on the past and prepare for your best year ever. I hope you will focus on your creativity so that the life you create is one that you're thrilled about.

With Aloha,
Patrick Ching

ART TIPS
(Back to the top)
- Great art tips
ART TIP-Doing Art for a living -

My father's first response when I decided to be an artist... "You better have something to fall back on in case the art thing don't work out". He told me this so many times that I eventually found something to fall back on... I joined the RODEO and fell back often. But that's not the point, so let me get back on track. Mine was a rare case of art-itis. I made up my mind at age sixteen to make my living as an artist "or die trying". I'm still alive.

Most people are not that determined to make it as an artist. For those of you who fit this description, there is a reasonable transition plan for you. First off, do a lot of art. Every chance you get. Put in the time and get good. Then find ways to make money from your art. There are about a million ways. I started by painting coconuts (this is still a good business). Fortunately as artists we are blessed with creativity. You will need a lot of this to succeed in business. Soon you will choose your ways to make money with your art and then you start doing them. When you are making more income with your art than the other jobs that you have then you can choose to let go of the jobs that you enjoy the least. So there it is in a nutshell. The good news is... it works! I have friends in many stages of this plan and they are loving life. A suggestion of how to start out is this:

Make small things that people like to give as gifts. These can include painted coconuts, angel ornaments, paintings, mailboxes, and clothing. Charge a modest price so you can start selling and get paid while you hone your skills. It will be easy to raise your prices as demand for your art increases. Let me know how it goes ok? If you are totally dedicated to making it work... it will. If not, then I recommend finding something else to fall back on "in case the art thing don't work out".

Kilauea Lighthouse Centennial - Festivities are being planned for the Kilauea Lighthouse's hundredth anniversary next May.

I'll be involved with planning the celebration events, orchestrating art shows, designing airport displays, doing T-shirt and logo art and creating an original painting to commemorate the centennial. Keep an eye out for more information as the time gets closer.

The lighthouse on Kauai, now the Kilauea Point National Wildlife refuge, is one of the most visited attractions in Hawaii. I was so happy to live and work there as a ranger in the 80's and 90's.

A Realistically Abstract Art Show Coming from Kauai to the World -
1 Month; 2 Receptions
Opening Reception/Auction February 2 6pm-8:30pm
Final Reception/Auction March 2 6pm-8:30pm




This is the first show of its kind though I intend to do a theme show like this every year going forward. These paintings will be realistically painted yet will appear abstract, focusing on sections of the sea. The opening reception of Kai will feature the first layer of paint on all of the ten paintings that I will create in one month.

On this night the public and internet buyers will be able to purchase the paintings at a special price that is significantly lower than the finished painting price. The first layer of the painting will be an indication of what the final painting will depict (see example above)

As the show goes on and the paintings get completed, their prices will go up each day.

The final Reception will take place one month after the first reception. During this final reception the paintings will be completed and available for sale via a live auction with live internet participation. Those who purchased paintings at the first reception will have the option to resell the paintings for a profit at the final reception.

The paintings in the Kai exhibit will be 36"x48" large, perfect for creating a mood of tranquility in common areas and lobbies of hotels, businesses or exquisite homes.

We hope you will enjoy watching this creation take place. The month of February 2012 will be a rare time to meet me in person as I'll be painting on site almost daily to complete these special works of art. Reproductions of the paintings in the Kai Exhibit, as well as other art will be available online here and at Patrick Ching Art Gallery in the Princeville Center.

ART - Kathleen Kelly - Date - 12/9/2012

While on Kaua'i last week, my husband purchased for me, the print of the painting of the seal in the clear water playing with a green ball. I am a former art instructor, and I used to own an art supply store as well, so I too am talented, but I respect your talent immensely! Had I known sooner, I would have taken a workshop with you! NEXT TIME! Also, please note the lovely lady who was working at your gallery when we were there was so kind. We ended up buying her version of the green church (where she told us she got married). Nice friendly staff!
