This painting depicts an area known as Yinboy, which is the headwaters of Sturt Creek.  The various circles show different waterholes along the Strut Creek drainage, that fill after the wet season, and the different colours of the waterholes indicates the different stages of drying out, or milkwater season.  The dot work indicates rain falling in the bush, and how it flows into the different creek channels.
