I don’t know if ‘Corella Downs’ exists or not but I just named this one in honour of the Corellas getting a drink from the water trough. This is a common enough scene in outback Australia. when the creeks dry up up, sometimes water point like these are a blessing for the wildlife!

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.”
