Rhythm in Blues


I've been working hard to get ready for a solo show of my new acrylic paintings. The Opening is on February 9. So I've had to write a new bio and artist's statement, design and order post cards, paint the sides of all my gallery-wrapped canvases, and more. Since I'm not in the habit of signing my work--it seems arbitrary to do so, but I guess it has to be done for marketing purposes--I've had to take my paintings down from the walls and sign them all, as well. And I still have some left that need to be wired. After all this I have to address post cards. I doubt I'll use the entire 1000, lol, which was the smallest print run available!

"Rhythm in Blues" is a bright geometric abstract in red, white, and blues, 30 x 40 inches on gallery-wrapped canvas. It's lively and rhythmic, with a musical feel. (I know it doesn't look very good against the green of my page...!) In case you just happen to be looking to purchase a painting today, it's available at http://www.lyndalehmann.com/. Or shall I say it WILL be available, after my show. Image c Lynda Lehmann.

  1. Hi Lynda,
    Some amazing pictures and photo's and love the one of the Studebaker. I love going to the Classic Car Shows here, and several years ago a friend of mine had a 1929 boat-tailed MG with a timber frame with canvas stretched over it. The Chassis was stell, and the car hadn't run for 15 years so I had great joy tinkering with it and getting it running again. The owner then spent thousands getting it fully restored, but you can't beat the old classics lol.

    Have a great day :)

  4. Wow, I really like this piece a lot. For some reason it evokes a sense of excitement of visiting a new, big city. Really amazed with your creativity.

  7. Colin, I like cars best as subject matter for photography! :)

    Wow, an MG from 1929? With a timber frame? Amazing!

  9. Thank you, merging point! Sometimes I feel like changing my template to black. Then I won't have these color clashes!

    Have a wonderful evening...

  10. Shimniok,

    Thank you for your too-kind words. I always have self-doubt and ambivalence, but that doesn't stop me from keeping on doing it (the art, writing, blogging, etc. and the talking, of course, lol...)

    Thanks for coming by!
