This painting is of Faraday Yard, at Cattle Creek in Rosewood country. The painting shows Little Cattle Creek in the top section above the hills, Westbanks river crossing the bottom of the canvas, and Cattle Creek itself running just below the hills. Beerbee was brought up by Tom Guilfoil after his father went to Chanel Island near Darwin for work. Guilfoil worked at Faraday Yard, which was owned by Tom Faraday who came to the Kimberley with the Duraks.
