Dora Griffiths continues in her father's tradition by painting Country. In this painting Dora paints Balibaleng Midnight Creek in the Timber Creek area within the N.T. Balibaleng runs from the top right of the painting across to the bottom left. The creek running down the bottom right is Saddle Creek and the two hills at the bottom are ant hills. The central hill is a small knob while the creek at the top right is Watermelon Creek. This creek and billabong alongside it were named after all the bush watermelon growing next to the creek providing a good source of food for cattle.
