Roy Thomas (1949 - 2004)
Time and Life ... the gift from the Great Spirit to us is time and life. Everything we want is here.
“I am born Ahnisnabae (People of the Land). I know how to paint. The spirit of art and our Elders teach me what to paint.
It is not how I paint, it is what I paint that’s important. Painting experience than knowledge is easier. The spirit of art teaches me that the paint brush comes from the hair of an animal and the handle of the paintbrush comes from the tree. I would like to acknowledge my relatives for their wisdom of invention of the art material. Being an artist completes my purpose in life. I am forever grateful.”
