Sadie has painted some of her Tja Tja (Grandmother’s) country called Ngantalarra. In this painting Sadie has painted water around the border of the painting. This water, commonly sourced from a soakwater, gives life to the country and people. Sadie has painted an abundance of grasses and mangarri (bush tucker) including tjunta (bush onions), punu ngana (bush berries), kumpupatja (bush tomato), pirntaly-pirntaly (sandalwood) and lily flowers that grow in the soak after rainy times.
