Patrick has painted some of his country east of Balgo. This country is found on Tanami Downs Station. The
main feature of the painting is the Budgerigah Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) associated with Patrick's skin group;
Tjapaltjarri. The U shapes represent the budgerigah singing as it travels throughout the country searching for food.
