Artist : SADIE PADDOON
Title : Milkwater
Size/Medium : 760 x 500mm: acrylic on canvas Painting
Sadie has painted Sturt Creek Country, near Billiluna community. This is Country her mother, the late Kathleen Paddoon painted in her early painting career. ‘Milkwater’ is a great white flood which occurs only occasionally in the desert. After big rains in the east the spreading floodwaters turn white as they move through warren (claypan) Country. The creek becomes virtually impassable but the sight is awe-inspiring and promises abundant mangarri (bushtucker) and kuka (meat).
