Emma's Choice - If you look closely you will see that this is a painting over a painting! If you step sideways and look at this piece you will see a sheen of diagonal lines throughout this work. I love Veronica's dotting technique.

Veronica has painted some of her traditional country, located close to her home community of Mulan. This painting features mungil, a type of seed. It was a common food source when Veronica was younger and before she came to live at Mulan permanently. Mungil is blue and purple when it is raw, turning yellow when cooked. It is washed to get rid of the salty flavour, then ground up to make flour for damper.
