Description

Queenie depicts the flooding of the Old Texas homestead in 1922. The homestead (top) is flooded to the roof with dirty floodwater shown as pink, a colour she often uses in her ochre on canvass paintings. The hills in the lower right depict the landscape of ‘Old Texas’. To escape the rising water, all the stores were taken to higher ground and the people sat around and drank beer, waiting for the waters to recede.
