In this painting Louise depicts the shimmering reflective light off the water droplets that form in the spray of the water when it’s windy at Lake Gregory. “In my country near the Malun community, there is a big lake they call Barrawool – Lake Gregory. When it’s windy, waves form and sparkle in the sunshine, we call it ‘nyabal nyabal’ This is what the light in the flicking water looks like…Sometimes the wind blows really fast. It makes me feel good when I think about it and remember my country.”
