Description: After the infrequent rain the desert landscape is transformed. The dried out Spinifex flower resemble a field of wheat and the mulga shrub bears green dense foliage and masses of bright yellow flowers. Growing amongst these plants is an abundance of wildflowers that turns the deep red coloured desert floor into a utopian garden “The reds and yellow in the work here represent the degrees of freshness of the yam plant and its leaves and flowers. This painting was executed at the end of the summer rain season that coincides with the main ceremonial season. It celebrates her belief that good seasons always return and that her ritual role has helped to ensure this.” In Wildflower Dreaming the artist pays homage to the spirit of the flowers. The transformation of the land means new growth and regeneration, so necessary for survival. A beautifully executed artwork at a great sale price
