Lovely blog about the history of Eel Pie Island (wish there was a better pic of me though):

It’s been a very busy month preparing work for Art District:  a fine art gallery in Amsterdam who have commissioned a series of large paintings 130cm x 130cm. These are loose atmospheric landscapes inspired by Turner and a delight to do. Having been doing finely detailed miniature paintings 10cm x10cm for greeting cards working on a large scale allows grand gestures and require a lot of energy.

The cards are ready to frame and at only £8 ea provide an affordable way to own an original oil painting.

So sad to see the council executing a row of lovely old chestnut trees along the Twickenham Embankment today to make room for the new development – R.I.P old friends.

The destruction of the trees has inspired me to make a new series of romantic riverside paintings using colours that I haven’t previously. The second one shows the river bank during the November Thames draw off.

'Limberlost' oil on canvas - Lee Campbell

Latest Work

Inspired by the cemetery where I run with Holly I painted this imaginary forest and was thinking of a title when I suddenly remembered a book that I’d loved as a kid. Apparently a classic ‘A Girl from the Limberlost’ was written by the naturalist Gene Stratton-Porter and set in a swampy forest in Indiana with lots of bug action  (I loved bugs when I was a kid) so this book had embedded itself in my memory. According to the History of Jay County by M.W. Montgomery, published in 1864, the name Limberlost came from the following circumstance: A man named James Miller, while hunting along its banks, became lost. After various fruitless efforts to find his way home, in which he would always come around to the place of starting, he determined to go in a straight course, and so, every few rods he would mark a tree. While doing this, he was found by friends. Being an agile man, he was known as ‘limber Jim,’ and, after this, the stream was called ‘Limberlost.’

Cloud Racing - oil on canvas Lee Campbell

This painting is inspired by my friend Kate who posted some lovely photos of riding on the beach. I often wondered if the seascapes needed some ‘action’ and this has provided the focus that was missing.

I grew up in Carew about 7 miles from Geraldine, a place called Carew near the Rangitata River. After all the earthquakes it’s so good to hear positive news from Canterbury.
