On a beautiful evening, Thursday June 2, 2011, Robert Schmid's paintings opened at the Sears-Peyton Gallery in NYC.

Robert meets Mike Speaker, telling Robert he has the soul of a sculptor. We invited Mike to see Robert's work because they seemed to have something in common regarding the handling of subjects.

The Grave Dancer Sculpture that I bought last year. It was marked 1990 and signed and numbered. I looked up Mike on the Internet and the rest is history. Click here for the story of the Grave Dancer.

This is a painting that Robert did many years ago. I have seen it hanging in several of their residences, and loved it.
Mike and Robert say goodbye and exchange, business cards, of course. It only goes to show that the Internet has really made the world a very small place, and connections very easy.
