The pastel paintings I create are the expressions of my love for the pastel medium. Most importantly the painting must fulfill your ideas and desires for your personal commissioned portrait.

I pride myself in sharing my heart and soul, all of my experience, knowledge and hundreds of hours of creativity to give you a masterpiece painting.

It is the softness, the texture and colors of pastel that have drawn me to this medium for the past forty years. All my pastel paintings have given me many hours of pleasure and just plain hard work with every layer of pastel challenging me to the fullest.

It is out of my sense of dedication and undying passion I have created by hand a variety of original pastel paintings including a floral collection with framed prints of flowers. This allows me to continue my quest to bring the glorious beauty of this world close up and personal.

Corporate Pastel Painting by L.A. CLINE



When creating a custom portrait painting I concentrate on capturing the look and essence of the subject along with the moment in fine detail. I paint in all types of lighting, morning, afternoon, evening, sunny and cloudy days so that the light is built into the layering of the pastel. A finished painting has about 20 layers of pastel that gives the painting the depth and detail.

Touching the heartstrings of my clients though these original pastel paintings has been extremely rewarding for both my clients and myself.



As the Artist, I feel most anything that is important to you could be considered for an original portrait painting: your family, memorial and corporate portraits, pet portraits, dogs, cats, horse prints and paintings, landscapes, florals, along with personal objects and things that are important in your life.

On the rare occasion I create original pastel paintings for sale they would be in the very special “Art for Sale”, on-line gallery where you can buy giclee prints for sale, find a very eclectic variety of art, including a beautiful collection of floral art prints.
