My name is Kerry Scally and I work and sell my work out of my studio in a small country town called Dumbleyung, which is in the wheatbelt of Western Australia. I work in watercolour, acrylic, and pastel along with some other weird mediums.
My original works can be purchased at my gallery/studio called Scally Art at 16 Absolon Street Dumbleyung Western Australia or by emailing me at:

    The storm, lightening and hail and wind and rain a couple of weeks ago has colapsed the top verandah on the pub. So looks a bit of a mess at the moment. I have done approx 7 commissioned paintings of the hotel Some in watercolour and some in acrylic. Locals love their pub. this was the first one and was commissioned by the new (at that time) publican to hang in the dining room. He was killed in a motor bike accident a couple of weeks before the storm. This makes the painting a bit sad for me to look at now.

    I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your friend…but you’ve created a beautiful work of art to remember him by. It looks like a huge beautiful place….i bet it’s beautiful inside…did it actually come under flood waters?

  • I am not sure if the pub flooded this time or just the roof collapsed, but in the year of the painting the cellars and ground floor certainly filled with water and also in the 50’s (I think) flood the same thing happened. Apparently this is why the pub sits in a street on its own as when it flooded the rest of the town was built on higher ground over the railway line. These should have went higher as they still flood at times of high rainfall.

    s so incredible— i can’t even draw a stick figure

  • Thank you. You can learn. It is all a matter of learning how to look at things so you see them instead of drawing what you think is there.

    Outstanding, incredible portfolio! You are a master! :)

  • Thanks, but a long way to go, if I live long enough that is, before I am a master. Still just struggle along, hoping the next one will be perfect.
