Unable to go to art school after high school, Earl joined the military in 1964, serving in the Philippines and Vietnam and NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, Maryland. Later he went to art school on the GI Bill, drawing and painting and graduating magna cum laude in 1979. He is a winer of the prestigious F. Lammot Belin Art Scholarship and was awarded a place on the PA Council of the Arts and the Arts in Education Roster. Earl taught and still teaches in this program and has been an artist in residence in schools and communities statewide. With a long teaching and exhibition history, Earl has won many awards. He believes that an artist is only as good as his last few paintings.

The artist’s brushstrokes are lush and visceral. Layer upon layer the landscape takes on shapes and colors that combine abstract with representational, moodiness with vibrancy. Nature seems ablaze in Earl’s paintings, spilling over and morphing, the elements and colors seem to pass with urgency, bursting with expression.

The artist lives with his dog Luna in a house with a wall of windows that he built in the Susquehanna County woods, looking down on Tuscarora Creek, which flows into the Susquehanna River through a remote part of New York State, in a place called Laceyville. Earl Lehman’s paintings have voices of their own, and he hopes that you enjoy their songs.
