Artist Statement : "In Canada and the U.S.A. the loon is usually a lone figure crying in a hidden lake. This particular group have raised one young loon which at a certain time of the year separates from the adults and goes to find new territory which he solidly protects until such time when he searches for a new mate. These three will part forever." - Robert Sebastian
