Louise paints about Bush Foods, in particular the Bush Melons.

Bush melons were often collected with Bush Yam Seeds. Women would typically hunt for these foods and bring them back to camp. The yam seeds 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.
