Two Aboriginal women worked for me at our museum/art gallery and one day they argues so much that I painted a large bright red painting of two women walking down the beach, then I painted another and called it ‘Pals”. I let them choose a painting and they were so happy and seemed to work out all their problems. After they tool their paintings home everyone loved them so much, I decided to do a series on this topic.
‘Mates’ is the third in this series. I hope this story inspires Aboriginal people to stick together and solve their problems peacefully and to keep our culture strong and always remember our Aboriginal heritage.
