Spring is in the Air at L.A. CLINE Fine Art

When Spring is about to change our world, I think of the day I saw the most beautiful bright sun-kissed Yellow Cattleya Orchid. This incredible flower stood 10½” high and was truly magnificent. It was so bright I could see the Yellow color from about 100 feet away. This was a magical moment for me and something I had to paint. I was very surprised to see this Orchid that was in full bloom planted in an old pot under a tree with other empty pots. I started painting as close as I could to the orchid as not to disturb or move it. If you look at the painting, the dark green background symbolizes the dark area where this beautiful orchid was placed. There also an indication in the painting that there was a white plastic holder leaning against the bloom. The pink/orange part of the orchid allowed the orchid to bellow out with an even more vivid light yellow that at times had a translucent shimmer which made it even look brighter. The painting reflects the very same vivid yellow with the undeniable fantastic and beautiful shimmer that changes colors during the different lights of day. Floral paintings are a breath of fresh air. Mother Nature gives us the beauty of our world and if we surround our environment with flowers and their painted images the energy of this beauty makes anywhere a wonderful place to be. I have developed a process to make Giclee prints closely replicate the actual original painting by supervising the process and using the proper heavy acid-free cotton paper that the acid-free...
Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

As an Artist, I am always looking for that beautiful inspiration to create another painting. Finding what you think is beautiful for a painting comes as a thought or vision that is undeniable and must be expressed. It is something you cannot get out of your mind. These types of aesthetic inspirations are very hard to find. There are so many different styles of art and what is beautiful to one is not to another. Not everyone sees beauty the same way that is what makes art so very interesting and personal. Beauty and art is a reflection of your personal taste. If you are drawn to a painting and would miss seeing the painting, you have made a personal emotional connection with the painting. Your space is your most personal part of your life. You live, work and relax in your home or office and it should reflect and be filled with images that bring you happiness. If you see a painting in a gallery or if you are working with the artist, request information or a letter from the artist that explains the point of view of why this was such an important image to paint. Once I bought I piece in California, and I asked the artist to write me some of his thoughts about the painting. When I received the letter, it brought me so much joy to read about the back story. Every painting has a back story. For example the painting you see here, “Flowers in Paradise” was created because of something I saw in Ocala Florida. I was meeting with a client who...

Fine Art Stationery for Important Life Events – Like a Baby Shower!

Writing this article is a joy because a very dear friend has been trying to have a baby for years and virtually gave up. She started Coach Erika Beauty Studio in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and decided that both her and her husband would concentrate on their careers. This woman went through so much that conceiving was a dream. Well surprise!!!! The dream came true!!!! She is having a girl she chose the “Enchanted Bloom” Giclee Fine Art Card as the stationery for her invitations to the Baby shower. My friend, Erika saw the original 38”X 38”, “Enchanted Bloom” pastel painting that I painted and just feel in love with its beautiful Light Pink Lavender Rose whirling round and round with very subtle petals encompassing the center bud that is about to unfold. I took the original painting and made small Giclee Reproductions on 80lb acid-free paper 5 ¼”X 3 ¼” Fine Art Stationery that has the most delicate deckled edge both on the end of the card and the envelope. Giclee pronounced (G-Clay) is the most accurate method of reproducing art. The term “giclee print” connotes a superior elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival inks. Having your own stationery that you personally choose gives meaning to what is important in your life or it just may be something you think is beautiful and would love to share. As an Artist who is constantly using my hands to create intricate pastel paintings these cards bring that feeling of the Artists touch to each Fine Art Card that also includes a...
