I hope this note finds you all well and feeling good. After a flood of wet weather and volcanic shake ups in Hawaii we are looking forward to a Colorful Summer of fun. My Art Tip this time will be on Painting Oceans.
With all the projects I got going on I often get advice from my friends to "focus". To this I reply, "I Do focus...on Everything!"
Well as you'll notice, this letter will focus on One thing...well, maybe two: The Papahānaumokuākea Song and Color Book Project, and How we're gonna make it happen.
You'll see what we've done so far and what we plan to do. You can see our project video and also a Painting in Paradise episode dedicated to Papahānaumokuākea and the sacred islands way out they-yah!
How will I fund the project? Partially through an Indiegogo funding campaign which you can see at:
I'm also holding an All I Got Original Art Sale featuring everything I own; even things I've been holding for my personal collection. Just reply to this email with any available original and I'll do all I can to have my original art find a good home with you at the best price possible.
Enjoy the news from Hawaii and beyond and keep your world colorful.
With Aloha from me,
Let your friends and associates know... please forward this email.

| Papahānaumokuākea Song and Color Book Project|
A life long ambition has been to play a role in the preservation of the northwest Hawaiian Islands and surrounding waters now called Papahānaumokuākea. The name is somewhat long and hard to remember especially for those who don't speak Hawaiian.
We've created a catchy song that will help people to remember the name and important aspects of the atolls after hearing it for the very first time.
With the help of a dedicated crew and the talents of Hōkū Award winning musician Kawika Kahiapo, the song is hear for you to use and enjoy. You may download the short and long versions of the song at the new website dedicated to the Papahānaumokuākea Song and Color Book Project.

| OALL I GOT ORIGINAL ART SALE - Original Hawaii Art For Sale - |
Friends, I'm putting all I have into the projects I feel are my most important contributions I can offer the world. The Painting Nature DVD and Video lessons I made were huge accomplishments for me because they hold my process, philosophy and detail the techniques I use to create my nature art. The Papahānaumokuākea Song Project is also one of the most important things I've embarked on.
These projects I take on with a "get it done no matter what" mindset until they come to life. I don't always know how to pay for the project costs and often I depend on extended favors and loans.
It's time for me to travel lighter and find homes for all my possessions including my original art. If you have been thinking of getting an original from me, It would really help now at this time of heavy output.
Please let me know which piece(s) you like and I'll do my best to have it be yours at a price you love.

(Back to the top) - See what people are saying about Patrick Ching's art and art instruction DVD.
| Fernando Rueda Izagirre - 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|
