  • This painting is about Maureen's grandmother's country in the Gibson Desert near Kulkurta, Central Australia. Her mother and siblings were all born here so Maureen feels a strong connection to this part of the lands. There are many water holes in the desert which become important landmarks as water is scarce. Families travel from rockhole to rockhole to camp and collect water. Maureen has included these in her painting as well as the tali (sand hills)
