Original Painting Sold

Yes, the original painting has been sold! But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a great looking framed print of this artwork on your wall.
Two interesting points to remember…
1 ) As my originals sell more and more, the prices for my original artworks increases in value! This means that the framed print that you buy of my artwork will also gain in value!
2) I will be working every day at making this a certainty by continuing to create this art form that defines my artistic life!
Invest in my art….watch your purchase gain in value as it adorns your wall.

or maybe a card….

Cary drew in biro from the age of 4 until his first oil painting at the age of 16. With the strong foundation of the values of drawing when he began painting there was an explosion of bright colour in his art. The creative flood-gates had opened! Cary has won many Art Awards all over Australia, ranging from The Portland Art Prize and more recently the Bendemeer Art Prize (twice).
“With my art, I focus on the beauty of our environment and our effect we have upon the natural world.”

    The surface of the water, the ripples and waves, really jump up. The lapping feeling is obvious. And the palm fronds silhouette are so delicate.

  • Yes the Tropics of North Queensland…some people call it Paradise … I call it home….even though I don’t live there anymore!
