His paintings may be seen as a his response to his environment, to the extraordinary beauty of his surroundings on any given day, whether it be the burgeoning of spring, the green glow of summer, or the desolate quiet of winter.
His paintings express wonder and joy, quietness and longing; they are his emotional response to his encounter with nature and the relatedness of all things. At ease with his medium, his subject, and himself as an integral part of the artistic process, Lehman’s paintings are spontaneous yet intelligent, bold yet sensitve. Line and color convey the essential qualities of nature and embody mother nature’s vitality.
