Testimonials

judge-website file1“Ms. L.A. Charnack/L.A. CLINE was the most meticulous, careful, competent artist I have ever met. From the initial meeting, through the many photographic sessions with em and without me ( for the background details), to the drafts and finished product, she was always consistently professional, dedicated to doing the best the most excellent job possible.

As to the quality of her work, the oohs and ahhs with which the finished portrait was met by the hundreds who saw it unveiled and the thousands who have passed by in the lobby of the Family Courthouse since, are proof of how well she captured me. My wife and I are thrilled with the portrait and the artist.”

This original pastel painting of the Honorable Judge Feder and other works were created before I married. I added L.A. CLINE as my permanent signature. L.A. Charnack and L.A. CLINE are one of the same.

 

two brothers0001 copy112The Goorland and Agatston Portraits.”Your portrait of my two sons and your portrait of my sister, Sari”s two sons are truly magnificent. The portraits not only look just like our children, the portraits are them. You truly captured the character of each young man. My sister; her husband, Arthur; and I and or children can’t wait to give the portraits to my mother for her birthday. The children are very excited abut giving Grandma this special gift which could not have been done without them we know my mother will cherish these portraits for the rest of her life.

I understand that these portraits presented a special challenge in that you painting two portraits as a set with more that one person in each portrait. Not only did the subjects within each portrait have to be coordinated, they had to be coordinated with the subjects in the other portrait, and the two portraits had to be “in sync”. To make matters even more difficult, my sons are 21 and 16 and my sister’s sons are 13 and 10. You were certainly up to the challenge and the result is superb.

Since Actions speak louder than words, the fact that I have just commissioned you to do another portrait of my sons for me should say more that all the accolades in the world.”

“L.A. CLINE is a wonderfully talented artist… The flawless intensity and vibrant colors displayed in her art illuminate my office. She has an uncanny talent for bringing nature to life.”

When Tamara first came to me to create this portrait of her beloved cat Madison Blue a Blue Hymilian cat she brought me some of her keep-sake fur. I also had some candid photographs of her pet and with this I started my research into the breed to create Tamara’s beloved pet.

“I finally received my painting (Simply Beautiful) by L.A. Cline back from the framers. And I cannot tell you how thrilled I am. I’m a big fan of L.A. Cline’s work and I have watched this painting from start to finish, as it bloomed into its full Beauty. I placed it over my fireplace, the focal point of my living room and it is more magnificent in person than it was on line. To be able to see all the detail and work that went into this. I can honestly say it has enhanced my living room and it truly has earned its name “Simply Beautiful” Sincerely,

“My name is Lee and I recently had the opportunity to see the original Pastel Painting “BLISS” created by Artist L.A. CLINE. I was so taken by the Painting I just had to have it. I wanted to have a framed collectible to hang over the main focus of my living room over my piano. Upon receiving my “BLISS” Collectible I was so amazed how it matched the original exactly. L.A. CLINE took the time to explain the painstaking time, technique and archival materials she uses to ensure that the actual Digital Fine Art Colors match exactly. The result-pure perfection of my framed 16″ X 20″ “BLISS”. I can not express how thrilled I am to be able to enjoy this Work of Art every day and highly recommend if you are an art enthusiast to be sure to check out this Artists site and see for yourself.”

 

 

 

 

“As an art and avid collector of L.A. CLINE’s work I enjoy her fine art for their realism and her gift of capturing the magnificence of our natural world. You can see her passion and attention to detail and the way she plays on light. In my new Fine Art Collectible “Tender Moment” the Grevy Zebras are sharing a very natural loving exchange. The Artist hand painted layers with acrylic paint the background for a more real feel and also used layers of pastel to give a more 3D effect to the Zebras making my collectible an original onto itself. I look forward to adding to my collection in the future. My family and I cherish her art. Sincerely, John”
