A selection of my latest work and ramblings. All photographs and other images in this blog are copyright and cannot be reproduced without my written permission and consent. You can purchase many of my works on my Pixels.com Shop. Please use the contact link below or the contact link on my website if you would like to make an enquiry regarding my work. "Painterly": relating to or characteristic of painting or painters. I have several online exhibitions and have published three books of my work.
Well, I’ve paid for 50 works on the exhibition site and displayed 37 in my main exhibition. It seems a waste not to display the remaining works so I’ve now got a smaller sister exhibition with them in imaginatively named “Additional works by Leigh Kemp” 🙂
After my abject failure to attract investment in my Santa Claus business on the grounds that it’s seasonal, the overheads are through the roof and the profit non-existent. I’m now looking for a marketing genius to help me market my artwork. The easy part first, said marketing guru must be able to sell ice cubes to Inuits and, now for the difficult part, be up for a real challenge, promoting my artwork 🙂 . Oh, and be delighted to work for a very minimal share of any profits as I don’t have any money 🙂
I designed this page to provide quick access to my artwork merchandise, books and exhibitions. The page contains information on all of my range of merchandise, books and my main online exhibition complete with preview videos.
I just got reminded why I’m not a member of any groups and societies. Against my better judgement I joined two this year and left two this year, you’d have thought I should have known better, it won’t happen again!. I really do not enjoy groups, clubs, societies etc., they can go their way in peace and I’ll go mine. 🙂
As the new year nudges ever closer I started thinking about which of my many works from 2018 was my personal favourite. I’ve had another prolific year and completed a heck of a lot of new works but one stood out from the others.
Sometimes a work comes together almost exactly as one envisaged it when taking the shot and this is one such work. I’ve had more successful and popular works but I have a soft spot for this work. It comes out of my “tree” period and was my first and only work to get to no.1 in the Olympus European Users Gallery.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel many miles overseas this year and visit some beautiful locations but, as things would have it, this work of a tree was taken less than a couple of miles from my home. 🙂
