In this painting, Yinggarda artist Sonya Edney paints her country in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia after the rains have fallen on the usually dry claypans turning them into wet soakages. When this happens the ground water attracts birds, insects, and animals and the previously barren claypans become alive with life. The earth is also covered in wildflowers that have come up as a result of the rains.

Sonya Edney is an Ingarrda-Wadjarri artist born in Carnarvon in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia in 1974. Sonya started painting at Burringurrah community, located between the towns of Meekatharra and Carnarvon
