Soul Provider

The Po‘ouli was discovered in 1973 in a remote area on the northeastern slope of Haleakalā Volcano on the island of Maui.  Since then, the Po‘ouli population plummeted and by the year 2000 there were only 3 birds left. In 2004 the last Po‘ouli died in captivity and the species became extinct.


Patrick Ching spent several weeks studying the Po‘ouli in the wild and the oil painting entitled “Soul Provider” was done from the artist’s personal field sketches and observations of the only Po‘ouli nest ever collected.  The scene is of a male feeding the female at their nest which was built in the upper canopy of a native ‘ōhi‘a tree.



The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual printed picture. Matted prints are measured by outside mat dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard-sized frames.

*Note that the actual picture size will be smaller than the mat size and may vary in shape depending on the shape of the original painting.



Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14”, or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than that of a matted print.



Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas, then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.



You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which adds an extra 1-5/8" all around, with an image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée and can be stretched at a frame shop near you, as a contemporary option to framing.



I will, however, deliver your order to a shipper or framer of your choice on O‘ahu and you can deal directly with them. Contact me for further information on international shipping and framing. Mahalo



Shipping for original art is to be paid by the buyer and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
