masmoulin s'est jeté à l'eau, celle de l'aquarelle

Thank you to Pierre for the attention on his watercolor blog, whose title (see above) translates roughly to "Masmoulin's dive into watercolor." When you put "Nicholas Simmons, un aquarelliste qui connaît la musique" into Babelfish, you get "Nicholas Simmons, a painter in watercolours who is up to all the tricks" heheheh. (I got a better explanation from Pierre!) He has blogged about many great painters on the watermedia scene, and documents his own watercolor journey. Check out his blog here.

Nick thank you for putting forward the blog of a modest amateur watercolorist. It is super nice of you. French artists should "take the seed"

cool Nick. i read enough French to understand most of the blog. i speak/write enough French to leave a comment and expose my ass.

it usually takes me two weeks at least after arriving in France to get back into the swing of things...

i like France. a lot.

a bien amicalement a tu,

Tres Jolie! and that's the extent of my French! (I think the first word is even in Spanish!) Very cool! and thanks for your comments on Hispa! Writing in Spanish is like trekking through mud during rainy season back home!
Well, I look forward to your upcoming paintings, you're very inspiring.

"a painter in watercolours who is up to all the tricks" i love this description of you! it fits to a 'T'. i've learned so much from your DVD, the most important being to relax and let the medium do it's thing. to go with the flow, so to speak. Happy Holidays to you, Nick and your beautiful family.:)

Pierre, I think I will be exhibiting there later in 2009, it would be great to meet you!

Joel - my French is about on the level of Mr. Haney from "Green Acres" - au reservoir.

Chris - the past few days have been spent playing with toys, I'll get back on the ball soon!

Pablo - I don't know if I'll be able to make it there this year, but I'm doing a workshop for CWA next year and it would be great to meet you.

Billie, thanks for the sweet message, we had a wonderful Christmas, and hope you did up there in the tundra region. :)
