Beautiful artwork is great but beautiful artwork with a heartfelt story behind it is unforgettable. Caroline Young’s paintings each have a great story behind them and there’s no better person to tell that story than the artist herself. Talk Story with Caroline at Pictures Plus Home at the Kahala Mall on Saturday, December 17th from 1 – 5 PM. Receive 10% off all Caroline Young artwork purchases during the signing only!
Caroline Young’s artwork is delicate, sensitive, timeless, ornate and very detailed. She paints in a classical technique called the “delicate style” – a technique refined over hundreds of years by the old Chinese Masters. Each of her works are painstakingly researched and painted with a sensitivity that, when you witness the paintings in person, is almost tangible. Here are a few of my favorites with some story excerpts…

Honolulu, March 24, 2011: Local artist, Dennis Mathewson, teams up with Pictures Plus and Chromaco to help produce and auction off an original work of art. 100% of sales will be donated to the American Red Cross Japan Disaster Relief Fund. The painting is entitled Tomodachi which, in English, translates into friend or friends. It depicts two tikis – one tiki (representing Hawaii) sharing a sprouting coconut with the other tiki (representing Japan). The painting symbolizes the friendship between Hawaii and Japan, and the Kokua extended to Japan in the wake of the tsunami.
The original is being auctioned off on eBay. Limited edition giclée (zhee-clay) prints and smaller matted fine art prints are also being sold at all Pictures Plus locations. There are only forty giclée prints in the edition, being sold at $200 each. The matted fine art prints are being sold for $20 each. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the Tomodachi original painting, limited edition giclées and the fine art prints will be donated to the American Red Cross to benefit the Japan Disaster Relief Fund. Pictures Plus hopes to generate $20,000 or more to donate to the American Red Cross.
Dennis Mathewson, an artist and custom painter, created the painting. He airbrushed Tomodachi onto aluminum and utilized an array of airbrushing and freehand painting techniques to produce a painting with vibrant colors and fine details. Chromaco, a fine art printing company located in Iwilei, reproduced the painting and donated high-quality, limited edition giclée prints of the Tomodachi painting to Pictures Plus. All Pictures Plus stores are stocking Tomodachi fine art prints and limited edition giclées. The original will be displayed at Pictures Plus stores and Diamond Head Gallery on Oahu on the following dates:

There are a lot of things our organization tries to do to help the community when we can, usually in the form of donated or discounted framing. We have done an art event at the Kaneohe Marine base for over 10 years.
On Sunday we were able to raise over $6,000 for charity that will go to many great causes including, but not limited to wounded soldiers. We are all very insulated from the reality of what our military does for us and how fortunate we are to live in the United States of America. We are not perfect, but compared to other countries we are clearly the safest, fairest and country with the most opportunity. read more…
