Sadie has painted some of her Tja Tja (Grandmother’s) country called Ngantalarra. In this painting Sadie has painted the soakwater Ngawirrti, a soak water never runs out of water. Surrounding the soakwater is an abundance of grasses and mangarri (bush tucker) including tjunta (bush onions), punu ngana (bush berries), kumpupatja (bush tomato), sandalwood and lily flowers that grow in the soak after rainy times. After the big rains frogs, turtles and fish can be found in the water hole. Sadie has painted the Nampitjin and Napanangka skin groups hunting together.
