This painting is the second in my ‘flight’ series. I am exploring what a marvel flight is. I am starting with birds then onto insects (the original fliers), then reptiles, fish and finally we mammals. I fly a lot in the dreams, so I want to know more!

Original Oil on Canvas. 61cm x 91cm

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.”
