Title: My Mothers country – Hatches Creek (Antarranginyi)
This painting is about the grass and water of my Mother’s country (Antarranginyi) west of Ampilatawaja. The hills and sand dunes are cover in flowers and sometimes we take the kids for a country visit and tell them about the dreamtime and that someday they might look after the country. This is were we go hunting for bush tucker and gathering bush medicines for the people. We return to this place especially after rain to collect our medicine. At Christmas time our families go there for ceremony and for swimming.
