Clusters of warm coloured dots are interspersed with deep blue dots, each created with a bamboo satay stick.

There are many little black plum-like berries in the Central Australian bush. This particular berry is actually a mistletoe (angkwerrpme in Josie's language), and one of just a few varieties that have edible berries; making it an important food source.

In this painting, Josie explores the ripening stages of the berries maturity - from green to shades of yellow, red and orange before finally a blueish purple (close to black) when it falls from the stem and is collected in bulk.
