A Message from Patrick Ching (back to top)

Hawaii-Art-Jan-2011-3-02.jpgI know you boys and girls have had quite a year. I’ve never seen people working so hard in all my years! It’s time for us to look deep inside ourselves and ask “what am I made of ?” And when you figure it out, Share it with others.

Here’s a riddle: What do you love to do that gives the most benefit to many people?
Is that what you’re doing for a living? If not, maybe it should be.

Woah, ‘didn’t mean to overflow yer brain...Relax, be good to yerself, Go get sumpin’ from Patrick Ching Art!

TIPS & RESOURCES (back to top)

Patrick Ching’s Artistic Insight (back to top)

The best results occur with the least effort. Keep this in mind as you travel through your artistic journey. Do you ever wonder why certain artist can get huge amounts of money for art that seems to be done with just a few strokes?

It’s because within those strokes are years of learning, experience and confidence. The confidence in these artists strokes are a result of constantly STRIVING for improvement. For example a person not used to handling a pencil will take many short, timid strokes to draw a circle, while a person who’s done it many times will swiftly scribe a great circle in a fluent gesture in one tenth the time. If you were in the market to buy a circle, which one would you get?

The same applies for paint. People appreciate efficient use of paint and strokes. They are repulsed by overworked art. So, STRIVE FOR EFFICIENCY.

It’s beautiful and it saves you time in your life to enjoy this beautiful world. I am a big advocate of making the best use of your time on Earth. That is why I encourage you to strive to get the best results with the least effort. Besides, That’s what looks the best. The world will love you for it.
