Artist Statement : "'Forever Flowing' comes from the river where my father's family is from, Gwa'ni, at the Nimpkish river. It has been the strongest flowing salmon river since the beginning of time. 'Forever Flowing' is the cycle, year after year, as the salmon come and go. This is why the first salmon [ in the design ] is black, the second red and then black, just as they are in cycles. This is a tribute to the Nimpkish River." --Rande Cook
