More than just a tea towel, “This is a calendar painting and tells the story of how the old people knew when to eat certain foods.  When the wattle flowers in winter they know that is the best time to eat Barramundi, black brim, eel, jew fish – all kinds of fish.  This is when the fish are fat, the fat goes through the meat, and it is the best time to eat them.”
