The White Horse Hotel was one of my favorite watering holes and Wally’s across the road on the right, used to sell the greatest ‘Granitas’ a lemon ice treat. Both places helped quenched many a thirst in Innisfail, my home town.
“oh yeah, when I served my apprentiship as a painter in the local council I actually painted the Zebra Crossing in this scene, so I got to paint it twice, this time in oil paint on canvas!”

SOLD

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.”

    Absolutely wonderful Cary. I am not at all surprised that the original sold.

  • thanks Davo…but I have to come clean! I actually donated this painting to the Local R.S.L ( the Navy group wthin that) to be raffled off to help raise funds for a Memorial at the local cemetery. Actually the Memorial close to my Dad’s (Hugh R.I.P) grave, Dad served in WWII. I always try and support things like that if I can. :-)
