The painting, "Journey of RavenSong" is Bill's expression of the spiritual journey that the carving of the canoe was for him. On the left going to the right are the spirits of Bill's paternal grandparents, his maternal grandparents, and two elders - all of whom had a great influence on Bill's life. "Raven Song" is surrounded by the characters of the sea - for the canoe and the sea are a significant part of Tsimshian life.

This painting was inspired by an idea that Bill's friend Art Vickers gave to him. They both liked the concept of the fresh new pole carving fading into the old deteriorated pole. But the main theme of "Now and Then" is the revitalization of the arts of the Tsimshian culture - something Bill has dedicated his full-time career to.
