Nicholas Simmons

Nicholas Simmons is a renowned artist who has graced this blog with comments occasionally on my paintings posted here. He was a big award winner in the National Watercolor Society's exhibition and his Fresh Sushi painting is shown here, one of his award-winning paintings. This will be one of the featured paintings in the National Watercolor Society Annual Traveling Exhibition October 31, through December 14, 2008. This will be at the Surprise West Valley Art Museum during these dates. I plan to view his painting "up close and personal" and hope that many of you will, too. It promises to be a very good exhibit. Call the museum for details, see you there!

Nick! It was prominently posted on a stand-alone wall away from the "gallery" wall, sorta like it was separated from the riff-raff paintings! LOL. Seriously, it was very prominently displayed and in just the perfect place. Also, seriously, this was a wonderful display of watercolor paintings, I was in awe.
