"Thank you so much. I love what you do !!
All the best to you as an artist too!"
Sophia Milos, Actress "Miami CSI"
"With greatest respect for your artistry and dedication to the Apache people, I thank you constantly for the privilege you granted in letting me acquire "Above All Adversities" a dozen years ago! I have gazed on the painting every day since, sometimes for long periods, while remembering the years I lived in San Carlos nearly 4 decades ago. The precious gift of your talent keeps me connected to a critical part of my life. Thank you, Lorenzo! Thank you very much. With warmest wishes".
Mike Stewart MD (Seattle WA)
I had the opportunity to meet Lorenzo this day on March 14, 2016 and saw for the very first time his exquisite paintings of his Apache people. Lorenzo is the oral historian of his people with the use of his brush and bringing to life the people who are so close and dear to him. His work ranks right up there with the best of traditional American artists with the likes of Remington, Russell and Farnby. There's no need to elaborate on his methods or technique as that is beyond the comprehension of art aficionados who simply want fine art that expresses a certain mood and capturing a particular moment in time. It is these frozen time frames that captures the very essence of Apacheria. Lorenzo sets the standards for contemporary Indian artists who will simply have to work much harder to convey their messages through their art.

"I enjoy the honor of having on our entry wall your beautiful oil of the Princess ("Apache Trail Morning"), with the black Indian blanket. I visited with you, Phippen Art show, Prescott, AZ. A true joy".
" Lorenzo is a very talented painter. Next time I'm in Arizona I intend to look him up."
Lucia St. Claire, Author-"Ghost Warrior"
"My wife and I were surfing the Net and saw your website. BEAUTIFUL WORK!!! "

Another prominent artist is the San Carlos realism painter Lorenzo Cassa. Cassa states that his art is about the beauty of being Native specifically Apache. He viewed his art as: “Life, in the simplest terms of the spiritual awakening that results with climbing the hills and hearing an elk bugle, watching an eagle soaring through a canyon, walking through the forest, listening to a stream; you know, the connection with nature and being mesmerized with all of creation. One does not tire from being in the presence of the Creator. I believe this is what my forefathers fought, and many died for.”
