Painting party gives guests Patrick Ching tutelage

Gloria Rivera said she likes Patrick Ching’s art because it draws her into the picture.

Gloria’s husband, Kauai composer and entertainer Larry Rivera, provided music to paint by Sunday during the painting party hosted by artist Ching and Rob Miller of the Mazzarella Gallery in the Kinipopo Shopping Village in Wailua.

Drawn by the large crowd that mingled in the gallery filled with Ching and Rob Miller art, people peeked in while passing by the shopping village adjacent to the Wailua Shell gas station.

Helping draw people to the small gallery, Kimo the holiday horse who, had just completed holiday stops at the Kong Lung center in Kilauea and the Ching Young Village in Hanalei with stops at the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital, basked in the afternoon sun.
