“I reflect upon the simple and profound truth that humanity and nature depend upon God for His/Her daily gifts of life, health, sunlight, air, water and rich soil. Though I am proud to have participated in over 200 public art exhibitions (including 40 juried exhibits) and having over 220 of my artworks in Australian, Indian, Italian, Swedish and American collections, I am happiest knowing that my artworks can help increase people’s appreciation of God’s daily presence.” Robert C. Schick

My drawing “(self) Portrait,” (1984, charcoal and pastel on raw linen); and, “Siri” (2015, oil on linen) were both chosen for the University Art’s “12th Annual Open Art Competition & Exhibition” by international portrait artist, instructor and juror Cuong Nguyen. My oil painting “Siri” received a third place award in the oil painting category. I have posted black and white images of these two artworks–come see the exhibit in person if you want to see what they look like in color 🙂

 

 


NEWS ARTICLES:

 

A REVIEW by Mary Larsen on Robert Schick’s life and art is featured in the Los Altos Town Crier magazine ‘Living In’ Spring 2017. Photography by Megan V. Winslow.

Approximately 250 of Schick’s paintings are owned by people in seven different countries, and a number of them hang locally. Mountain View artist Robert C. Schick has spent much of the past two decades on a mission: to call attention to the beauty and historical value of the area, as well as to preserve it on canvas. Schick draws inspiration from the landmarks and pastoral scenes of the local area, many of which have vanished since he painted them. READ THE FULL STORY
