Everyone in the art world knows Nancy Guzik and Richard Schmid. I have the great pleasure of calling these two fine artists friends. One of my most memorable experiences was in the early 1990s when Trish and I spent 2 weeks with them in Alaska . . . I was able to witness two masters working in the field.
I have several paintings by both of them which I cherish. The Guzik painting shown below is of her cat; painted when her studio was not far from mine in Ft. Collins, Colorado . . . twenty years ago. My sculpture, "Hummingbird and Rose" sets under it.
