Title : When I was young
Size/Medium : 400 x 300mm: acrylic on canvas Painting
This painting tells the story of when Tossie was a young girl walking in the bush. The circles show the places she travelled (from bottom to top) Nynmi, Nyila, Kiwirrkurra, Jupiter Well Natawarlu (Well 37 on Canning Stock Route) and finally arriving in Balgo. The green represents the grasses she hid in with Imelda and her family from the kartiya (white fellas), and the radiating lines show the tali (sandhills) and desert flowers she walked through on her journey.
