A COOL CORNER,
Warrandyte will ever be associated with Clara Southern. Warrandyte was Clara Southernís home for thirty-five years, and in her works she captured the very spirit of Warrandyte. She depicted the village with its pub and wooden buildings; she depicted the old bridge and minersí cottages surrounded by blossom trees; and here in this Winter scene, she depicted a cool, quiet corner of the Yarra River with the wattle in bloom and an inquisitive male fairy wren perched on a twig above the stream.
