Description

Wom's Six Dogs is a painting inspired by Dick Caplick's story of the forced removal of the last Aboriginal woman living just out of Eumundi before World War 1. Wom's six dogs were shot and she was removed to a mission. The story struck a chord with me and I felt the anguish this would have caused her. I tried not to sentimentalise the dogs as camp dogs can often be pretty mangy critters.
