Hand Painted Pink Rose Emu Egg Jewelry Box

My Pink Rose Emu Egg Jewelry Box is painted with acrylics and measures a large 5 1/2" x 10 1/2".
The inside of the box is lined and can hold quite a bit of jewelry. The beautiful wooden stand you see here, comes with each emu egg jewelry box I paint.

The gorgeous green/black color is the natural color of the egg. The design I've painted, wraps around the front and back of the egg. Pink Swarovski crystals have been added for extra sparkle.

To see more of my egg art, please visit my ETSY site at: or my website: . I'm always happy to discuss custom designs for the unique jewelry box you might have in mind.

Old-Fashioned Ornaments Direct from the Artist

Hey hey everyone! I have a large inventory of hand-sculpted old-fashioned Christmas ornaments FOR SALE via my website:

These are adorable in person; the pics just cannot show the attention to the tiniest of detail I have applied to each one I sculpt. Each is my own, unique, OOAK design (the first in 2000). I never use molds, kits or any type of patterns in my artwork. Each ornament is OOAK even if based on the same design, varying in body position slightly, or perhaps paint color(s).

Each ornament is SOLID polymer clay--no fillers used. Each is reinforced inside with wire and or other support. I hand-sculpt each, then bake, paint with acrylics and glaze. A gold thread hanger is attached.

Children get a kick out of these little guys and they look great when you have an entire set on the tree. Choose from TOY SOLDIERS, SANTA, MRS. CLAUS, SITTING ELVES, ELF ON A CANDYCANE. I also sculpt cute little snowmen, but don't have pics online at this time. If you want a snowman, email me and I'll make one especially for you!

Chanuka is Around the Corner!

But my Chanukea's are here!

I had these extra Hebrew building blocks and woke up one morning with an idea to create Chanukea's (Chanukah Menorahs)! As you know, sometimes the image in your head doesn't always become the same in reality. But! I am very excited to share these four pieces I created!

Each Menorah measures approximately 11" x 3" x 3.5", has cork on the bottom to protect your surfaces, and is signed and dated. The metallic blue menorah is currently for sale in my Etsy shop, but please contact me if you would like to purchase one directly from me:!

PS! These are the only four I created!
When they've sold - they're gone,
so hurry and place your order!!!

Montana Grasses

When I was a kid, roaming around the prairies of Montana, the seeds of this grass would catch in my socks and jeans. Then, I called it wire grass, and I hated the stuff.

Now, I find myself lost in the beauty of the graceful shapes of these wiry seeds...

Beautiful Hand Painted Emu Egg Butterfly Jewelry Box

This butterfly jewelry box was created using an Emu egg that measures about 5 1/2" tall and 10 1/2" around the fattest circumference. The egg has a beautiful horizontal straight cut and opens to reveal a fabric lining and an inside area that can hold quite a bit of jewelry. Refer to the photo of my wedding ring inside, this will give you an idea of the real size.The butterfly was handpainted against a beautiful soft background of lt green, pink & white. I've used lots of Swarovski crystals on this piece, clear & green, to represent the centers of each flower. The crystals really give it a great shimmery look. The shell of this egg is very thick and sturdy and is a beautiful black/green in color. The Emu box comes with a solid wooden stand, that holds the box very firmly.

Available at my ETSY shop:

Fall Coyote

I've created wolf and coyote art in the past, so it's not a new subject. However, this new digital design, titled, "Fall Coyote" was inspired by coming face to face with a coyote in my back yard here in Texas! I was so startled and amazed.

My husband and I were sitting out back in the wee hours of the morning (around 1:00am), just enjoying conversation, the full moon and a slight breeze. All of the sudden a coyote comes trotting across the grass just yards away! He obviously had no idea we were sitting there in the shadows.

My first reaction was trying to whistle to get his attention! lol...yes, I tried to whistle, but was so excited, the whistle wouldn't come out, so I jumped up and yelled, "HEY!!". (hahaha)

The coyote stopped in his tracks and turned around staring at me just like the coyote in this new artwork I've created. Then he took off running into the night! What a wonderful experience!

You can purchase a print of this OOAK design by visiting my website: (See the DIGITAL PRINTS section)

Flame of Life

Life is not guaranteed. Scientists agree that the conditions necessary for life to occur and be nurtured and sustained on this planet are not only unlikely, but exist within such a narrow range as to be almost inconceivable. It's highly unlikely that they have occurred by chance. For so many intricate systems to balance in the way they do, is highly improbable and seems to the pondering human mind, to be virtually impossible.

If these conditions occurred by the hand of a Greater Power, they remain an equally improbable and delicate combination. For instance, if the ratio of just one element in our universe, carbon, for instance, were off only by a few degrees from where it is, life as we know it could not occur.

Whether by chance or by the hand of a benevolent Creator, or by combination of both, we cannot afford to skew or destroy the balance that makes our green, lush and gorgeous planet a haven of life for millions of species. Including us...

Personally, I hope to be part of the solution more than part of the problem. Each of us has many options for being a better earth steward. Imagine what our planet would be like if we continue to destroy land, air, water, and species. Picture a cold, stale, rocky mass, devoid of color and life. No breathable oxygen, no drinkable water, no food, no flowers, no children...

Let's speak out against the abuse of our planet. Let's get together to move our governments toward global solutions for global warming and irreversible pollution, before it's too late! Let's protect the flame of life.

"Flame of Life" is available at , or you can buy it framed at Imagekind. Text and image c Lynda Lehmann.

The Artist: “Tortured Soul” or Joyous Participant? Examining the Stereotype

I've heard it said that artists are unstable, unreliable, flaky, unreasonable, quirky..... The list of negative personality and character traits often attributed to creative people seems endless. But I know many people who are bitter, negative, moody or withdrawn, and they are not artists! Likewise, I know many artists who have balance and perspective as very evident traits in their personalities, who at the same time are capable of great creative vision, passion, and works of commitment and imagination.

For me, art and design have been a source of joy in my life since the time, long ago, when I first played with "Colorforms" as a small child. Viewing the art of other artists, both the great and the less well-known, and doing my own art, has seemed to elevate me above the ups and downs of the everyday world, and to lift me beyond whatever sadness or despair I might feel.

I would make the point that there are people in every field of endeavor who are evolved, stable, self-aware, and competent, and also in every field, those who are self-indulgent, biased, regressive, or just plain "insane." For this reason I dislike the stereotype of the artist as a"tortured soul," and don't accept it. Though I will concede that some artists may produce their greatest works at times when their equilibrium is upset by human suffering, either their own or other's, I believe that many artists are very conscious of peace and social justice issues, and are often outward-looking and active in the pursuit of solutions.

In fact, most artists I've known love to share and communicate as well as enjoy all the immutable and ubiquitous beauties of the world. To the artists of the world I say: Ignore the stereotypes and create in joy!

To read more of my thoughts on the creative process, please visit:, or read my articles on Creativity Portal. All text c 2006 Lynda Lehmann. The image above is "Souls of a Restless Sort," done in ink on vellum. I always loved biomorphs, so this is one of my favorite drawings. Prints are available at my site listed above.

Love an Old-Fashioned Christmas?

I've always loved an old-fashioned Christmas including an old-fashioned tree.

In 2000 I decided to design my own old-fashioned themed Christmas Ornaments from polymer clay. The first was a 3-inch Santa Claus. He turned out so adorable. I enjoyed the process so much that here we are 7 years later - I'm still sculpting Christmas ornaments!

My line of ornaments include not only 3-inch tall Santas, but also Mrs. Clauses, Toy Soldiers, Sitting Elves, Elves on Candycanes, and Snowmen. I haven't taken pictures of the snowmen yet, but will be GIVING SOME AWAY!

LABOR DAY SPECIAL!! Through 9-7-07...if you purchase 3 Christmas Ornaments, I'll GIVE you a 4th free....a cute little snowman!

So come on by my website and purchase your own old-fashioned ornaments. :)

A World of Their Own

A woman and three children ensconced by the spread of a magnificent tree, totally absorbed in the private world they are sharing. What would our world be like without the drama and beauty of such magnificent trees?

Trees give us not only beauty and add dimension to our world, they give us shade, provide animal habitat, wood for all our human "creature comfort" needs, and hold the soil in place. They grow everywhere in amazing diversity, until we raze and burn the forests.

We can all help the Earth and help to insure human survival by planting an extra tree or two in our yards, or by sending in Action Alerts that address issues such as clear-cutting for industry and rainforest preservation. Join the World Wildlife Fund or the Nature Conservancy or the Rainforest Action Network, to put in YOUR two cents!

The way I look at it, the "Tree of Life" is at the heart of life.

A Pristine Land

When I see such a clear and clean view, no litter or pollution apparent to the naked eye and the air sweet and pungent with the scent of pine, I wonder how the land looked 200 years ago, before the Industrial Revolution. I can not begin to imagine the sparkling natural beauty of the landscape. Imagine how much happier we would be if we were PART of this environment, cherishing, protecting, and enjoying it, instead of using it up for profit or simply moving THROUGH it at jet speed.

It's Been A While!

Family Ties
Textured Acrylic on Deep Gallery Wrapped Canvas
16 X 16 X 1.75 inches.

Being an artist in the midst of today's technology can certainly be a challenge!

While the resources for exposure are almost endless on the internet it can also be an all-consuming task to maintain your online presence.

It's been a while since I posted anything here on my blog and today I would like to share this new piece entitled "Family Ties".

When I originally painted this one, I just wasn't know how we artists are, we can never decide if we like something or not and we are way too hard on ourselves. How many pieces have you painted over and had someone come to you and ask where it is?...too late...ooops! We can never get it back once it's gone!

Anyway, I didn't do that and "it is what it is". I knew that I did love the simple "rawness" of it and it has since received some wonderful, positive feedback from fellow artists, which is always good.

As artists we must learn to always go with our gut instinct.

I just wanted to share this beauty of a Maine sunset with you. The backlit clouds and their reflection on the lake surface were just glorious!

I love being in a place where the fabric of the land is not torn and tattered, where the Earth's skin is still (relatively) healthy and brimming with life. No litter, no crowds, no noise: just the gentle wind on your face, reflections silver on the smooth water, and a panorama of the heavens unfolding on the twilit sky. You can have a sense of yourself in relation to the universe, and tune in to your thoughts in a focused way that's not often possible, with all the distractions of modern life.

How will we preserve what's left of our natural heritage, these pristine and "holy" places, for future generations?

A long line of slatted wooden porch chairs in an abstract pattern, seems to be waiting for sitters, or perhaps something else!

A large part of our lives is spent waiting for one thing or another. How much time we spend waiting is probably due to our expectations of life: do we believe in predestination or waiting for the hand of a higher power to intervene in our behalf, or do we take responsibility for our fates in spite of our varying beliefs in Deity?

Many of the world's cultures have, I believe, a myth of a sort of Cosmic Jester embedded somewhere in their mythology. According to books I have read, whose titles escape me at the moment, this notion is so prevalent, almost universal, that we have to question why this is so. It seems the Jester is seen as a sort of intermediary between the physical and spiritual worlds, i.e. between man and God. The Jester is the force responsible for synchronicity, or what I would call "meaningful coincidence." When one's life takes ironic turns and "special" or remarkable events seem to coincide with personal milestones or rites of passage, this becomes a tantalizing notion.

Most of us have at least a few recollections of events in our lives that seemed to present us with some unique personal meaning, especially "fitting" for us as individuals living in the greater cosmic soup.Which moves me into thoughts of energy, the eloquence and organized chaos of the universe, etc.

No matter where each of us stands on these issues, it's fun to speculate. No one knows the answers, and I suspect that truth is as fluid as the ocean. If only we could see the whole picture....

Which activities and passions we choose to pursue during our short lifetimes, determines who we are and shall further become, while we wait for answers.

Hello It has been a while.

Hello everyone.

Just posting to touch base. It is has been a while since I have posted on this blog, sorry.

This is just a little bit of what I have been up to.
