Patrick is currently completing a backdrop mural for the Haruo Uchiyama Forest Bird Carvings Permanent Exhibit at the Bishop Museum 

7’ x 9’ Acrylic painting; Commissioned  by the Friends of Bishop Museum; 

Completion Date July 12, 2024

When Haruo Uchiyama presented his idea for an exhibit of his Hawaii bird carvings to then Princess Michiko of Japan, she showed him a painting she had by Patrick Ching entitled “Hidden Valley”. Haruo then contacted Patrick to paint the background for his Hawaiian forest bird carvings. This exhibit is a combination of Haruo’s birds, a modified version of Patrick's Hidden Valley painting, and the craftsmanship of the Bishop Museum’s exhibit builders.
