This story was found hand written on the back of the painting. I just love it - Gordon Downs lies between the Tanami Desert to the North East and the Great Sandy Desert to the South West. In the dry season the place look(s) like the desert. No water on the surface except maybe round Salt lake. Bad water in the lake. All the good water is in the ground in the soaks. Only blackfella knows where to dig. You dig sometimes 4 foot, sometimes 10 foot. Plenty water. In here you can see all the soaks, about a dozen. The best soak right in the middle of that round salt billabong. Never dries up that one. You know its there. Little flowers growing all year round in that one. You can see all the sand dunes blown around by the wind. The white dots, thats our tracks at the bottom of the dunes. Walking all round. Hunting for goanna and kangaroo. Always hanging around the soaks. Story as told by Heather Gordon December 2012
