Walking the Dog - South Johnstone by 

a typical summer day back in the 80s in South Johnstone. North Queensland. It looks warm here but rest assured, rain is never far away at South Johnstone! *
*oil on canvas SOLD

note: I checked out this building on Google maps street view and it seems that cyclone Larry must have played havoc with the front of this iconic old shop front. now it is just a square looking building, not totally unpaintable if you include the whole street scene. I guess cyclones do change a lot of things over the years!

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.”
