Story of the art:

(Gulgulay yaarri-y - gool goo lay yarr i) Golden Wattle sunset.

Australia’s national floral emblem - the Golden Wattle. When in (garayn - gar -ain) flower, the Golden Wattle displays the national colours, (gawarrawarr - gar warra ware) green and (gidjirr- geej aar) yellow / gold. The golden wattle is viewed by (burralaa - boo rraa laa) many Australians as a symbol of unity.
Acacia forest is Australia's second most common forest type after Eucalypt (Yurrull - yoo rrool), bush with 9.8 million hectares or 8 per cent of total forest area. Almost 1,000 species of Acacia occur in Australia, making it the nation's largest genus of flowering plants. 
The old Anglo-Saxon word 'wattle' comes from the quick and handy (gundhi - goon di) house (dhurra-li- door ar li) construction method of the early English settlers. (Dharra - dar rrah) Tree branches and saplings were (garri-y - gurr i) cut and woven onto wooden frames to create panels called wattles. Sydney - the city - began with a wattle branch.
Beautiful (gunima - goo ni ma) Mother Earth.
The (gagan.gagan - garg en garg en) many colours in the background represent the colours found in golden hour sunsets. This design was completed for an aged care home in Yuin country. The residents are in the golden sunset stage of their lives. (Ganunga - gar noon ga) They are golden to us. Our (dhiriya - dearr i yaa) old man and  (yambull - yum bull) old woman who should be treasured (yaliwunga - yarli woonga) always.
