Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas

Signed on the back.

In this painting, Louise paints about Bush Foods, in particular the Bush Melons (the red/orange/white circles). Women would typically hunt for these foods and bring them back to camp. The seeds of these melons would need to be soaked in water first before being crushed up to make damper. Women would head to the waterholes to do this, and then proceed with the cooking process. These bush foods were a big source of bush tucker for Louise’s family.
