HONOLULU, HAWAII – Hawaii artist Thomas Deir, resident of Kailua, Hawaii, has donated signed artwork to the 10th annual fundraising event of the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine’s Hawaii H.O.M.E. (Homeless Outreach and Medical Education) Project. H.O.M.E. is a non-profit organization that provides free healthcare to Hawaii’s homeless population. This year, the annual fundraiser, Ho’ola Me Ke Kahiau, “Healing with compassion through selfless giving,” will be held on Saturday, November 19th, 2016 at the Waikiki Aquarium. Proceeds from this event will benefit six medical student-run free medical clinics at homeless shelters and to the unsheltered homeless in Hawaii.

WHAT: Silent Auction and Food and Wine Tasting fundraiser to benefit the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project
WHERE: Waikiki Aquarium, 2777 Kalakaua Avenue, Honolulu
WHEN: Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to give back to the community through the Hawaii H.O.M.E.  Project. This non-profit is all about collaboration and working with the community. The organizers and volunteers are creatively helping our community in many ways. H.O.M.E saves unnecessarily expensive trips to already busy and overworked hospitals in Hawaii. HOME is a long-term solution that can help the homeless population find much-needed care during a crisis event – and provide care to prevent a crisis event. My hope is the artwork I have donated will resonate with the supporters who will be attending the event,” said Deir.

“This fundraiser will occur during the Holiday Season, and I thought it would be helpful to offer Matted Gift Prints in addition to canvas Giclee prints and Hawaii abstract paintings.  I hope my donation will contribute to the continuation of the good work by the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project.  They work they do is very important for our community,” said Deir.

The Power Of Artistic Gifts

Art can link an emotion to an intended message. The power of artistic gifts is how they create a certain response that enhances the communication. For example, those who embrace spirituality in their lives might find dolphin art to have soothing and uplifting quality.

Artistic Gifts Leverage Communication

The power of artistic gifts is how they can leverage communication. Here’s an example. The most meaningful gifts I’ve received from my children are the handmade cards they made. Their handiwork touched me in a far deeper way than a store-bought gift.

SHOP Thomas Deir Hawaii Art onlineNot everyone has the time or has cultivated their own talent to create artwork as gifts. Today we have the luxury of jumping online to purchase unique artistic gifts. The important thing is to choose the artwork that best delivers the emotional aspect of your message.

Artistic Gifts Say, “You Value Them!”

The power of artwork as gifts is in the way it says you value the recipient. It shows that you made the effort to find a unique gift and meaningful. It communicates how you feel about them. Giving artwork, even if you are not the artist, is a way to bestow original gifts to co-workers, friends and loved ones

Art includes a variety of things such as tapestry, metal working, poetry, drawings, music, carvings, sculptures, paintings, jewelry and many more other forms. The amazing characteristic of artwork is the unique quality. There are vast art forms and they are incredibly unique.

A Final Thought…

This post touched on leveraging artistic gifts to enhance communication, a critical aspect of society. It shows one more way how art changes the world.

Bison cave paintingWhat is the first thing that comes to mind when we say the word “caveman”? Usually one of the first mental images that pops up are cave drawings. Early man communicated in ways that we wouldn’t understand today, however most everyone through the ages understand imagery. The drawings could have been made as a way to communicate a situation to others, however in a historic sense, early man’s drawings have become powerful artistic gifts to us because the drawings give us insight to the life of cave dwellers.

Art has countless expressions in man’s cultures and societies.

Tropical Flowers And Floral Art Can Transform A Room

Living and working in Hawaii provides me with unlimited resources for kitchen backsplash designs ideas. Many of these ideas come from the abundance of tropical flowers in Hawaii. As a tile mural artist I have a unique opportunity to transform a room with tile murals with paintings of hawaiian flowers.

The Magic Of Tropical Flowers And Floral Art

Imagine that you can control the mood in your home. The emotions that flowers impart are expressed within a painting. Select a painting and bring the mood you desire to any area in your house or office.

The positive expression of tropical flowers and floral art will transform a room. The color of flowers has the power to effortlessly change a mood. A red rose immediately connotes the feeling of love, a yellow daisy brings a joy, a lilac or lavender offers serenity and healing. Tropical flowers can add an exotic quality that is almost magical. Tropical flower art has the added benefit of transmitting the magical qualities of flowers without the time it takes to care and arrange cut flowers.

Paintings of tropical flowers can be realistic, or painted with an impressionistic style like that of Claude Monet. We’ve noticed that in many of our paintings of Hawaiian flowers, the size of the flower can have an abstract or even surreal quality.

Floral art can appear in many variations of color, size, and groupings. You can decide what type of tropical flower art best serves your purpose.

Perhaps you want a conversation starter in a meeting room or entertaining area, or to be surrounded by the grace and elegance of pink bougainvillea petals as you prepare family meals in your kitchen.
