In this painting the artist has painted country belonging to her son, not far from Port Keats in the Northern Territory. At the top of the painting is a range of little hills called Jinung. The wavy line running across the centre is Yarrbillum Creek. The grey areas along the creek are waterholes and below the creek are lots of hills and some billabongs. One of the larger shapes on the right is Nungoo Billabong, which belongs to the artist’s mother’s country. Next to this is Mooneema. An aeroplane crashed at this place and was stuck in the marsh. The pilot had to walk to Port Keats. Next to this is Yarrbillum and the small circles are little hills.
