Artist Statement : "When two people are working together, they seem to do more. Whatever they do is done better. The bond of true friendship is helping one another. Geese flying at night are examples of this. Birds are extremely important to me and are a favourite theme of my paintings. The stars represent the things that can be accomplished together. Each star is different because everything I do is different." - Roy Thomas
