"Great Woolly Beasts, and some feathery aminals* too,” by Campbell Hutchinson ©2010, a children’s book of 14 paintings and limericks.
"Animals are nothing but the portrayal of our virtues and vices made manifest to our eyes, the visible reflections of our souls. God displays them to us to give us food for thought.” Victor Hugo.
We conjure up animals in our image. I do that when I paint, or when I write these limericks. But fortunately for the animal world, some of man’s less admirable traits have not morphed into the animal kingdom.


About the Author

Campbell Hutchinson
chutchinson3 New Orleans, LA
A former lawyer now pursuing a career in fine art, I am an expressionist painter trying to capture the spirit of my subject, be it man, animal or place. In 2008 I wrote, illustrated and published my first book, “wild things,” consisting of my animal paintings and limericks I wrote about each painting. My five succeeding books were in the same vein, featuring my animals and limericks. My recent (2014) book, "This is Our Land," is markedly different in that the emphasis is on the land and wilderness, and all my paintings included in the book are landscapes. Accompanying each painting is a quote from a noted writer, poet, naturalist or environmentalist about the value of our wilderness and its preservation for generations to come. Edward Abbey wrote “Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.” That is the message of “This Land is Our Land.”
