Snake waterhole

Andrick Ross

acrylic on linen

91cm x 91cm x 2cm


“My name Andrick, and I like to do the painting with Snake, with people tell lots of stories about the snake. Listen to them black people you know, that’s why I have done this painting. More, some people, some bush men don’t like that Snake but the snake listen a couple of local mob. That’s all I want to tell today. About the Snake stories. And the people around at, near the Snake waterhole, they are still mustering the horses out there, and the house, and the toilet, separate. And the hills, the stars “sprinkling” at the top there. This one at the night, the moon light one, night mustering, get them cattle back in the yard, and the horses, with the chopper. That’s all about today.”
