about this painting:  Linda paints ‘Tingari’.  The Tingari men were creative spirit beings who created much of the landscape in Central Australia.  Linda’s painting depicts the desert of homeland (between Lake MacKay and Lake McDonald).  The series of parallel lines that inter-connect the concentric circles are a series of pathways established by the ancestral beings for the purpose of travelling from one ceremony site to the next, which are shown as concentric circles.
