Artist Statement : "This design illustrates the stage I am in when I paint and also how I live. I try to have a clear mind, clear body and clear spirit. The water is clear in some places of this land and water is represented by the fish. The mind, body and spirit are represented by each fish. When my people braid their hair it means to be in balance with themselves. The three fish also represent the three stages in life we all go through: twice a child, once a man. Fish represent water, water gives us life." - Roy Thomas
