Original Pastel Paintings in the L.A.Cline Fine Art Store

Almost all the Original Paintings created by L.A. Cline were commissioned works of Art that are permanently exhibited in Courtrooms, Corporate Offices, Universities, homes and businesses of many clients. L.A. Cline started the Sports and Entertainment collection in 1996 with a Pastel Painting of Dan Marino. These paintings were created from nostalgia or from the actual events like Super Bowl XXXIII. Each Painting has its own incredible story. The Artist went out and started this separate collection which became artworks featured on ABC Channel 10 TV and showings at the South Florida’s Sun Life Football Stadium and the BB&T Hockey Stadium. These pieces were show stoppers and the Artist received many commissions when these pieces were presented to the public. These two paintings featured here are from the Artists private collection that are now in the L.A.C. Fine Art Store. To create this Original Framed Pastel Painting L.A. Cline was at the game in the dugout waiting for Sammy Sosa’s turn at bat. Passes to the games were not easy to get so the Artist had to dig deep to find something extremely memorable to paint. You can feel Sosa’s feet planted firmly in the dirt while the force of his upper body twists to swing when the time was right. His cheek is puffed out with chewing tobacco or gum as he looked intently to see the pitch. It was an exciting forever moment. This image shows the painting framed.

The additional pressure to show the painting you are creating to the world as you are working to create a master pastel painting is something most artists keep to themselves. However, I feel is very important for the viewers to see how this blank canvas disappears as this pastel painting progresses. Planning a painting and making the first mark on that white surface is over whelming moment each time I start a new painting. You have to keep painting until you see that glimmer of something that was in your mind and then you continue carefully to create the environment of the painting you want the viewer to see. Emailing, blogging and posting art online, the Leprechaun painting updates, is a look into the creative process flowing from my mind to the painting. The image that you are viewing now is of my rough unfinished work. This process of updating my blogs, posts and emails shows the deep commitment especially in front of an audience that we as artists have to keep creating until we have that ultimate work of art. Figurative art is very exciting to me. I enjoy painting the figure and face of any individual and I am having a great time creating this “Happy Leprechaun”. After creating the pencil art to scale of what I...
