Best of 2009














The February 2010 issue of Watercolor Artist is out with the Best Watermedia Paintings of 2009. It was nice to see my entry from the 30th Pennsylvania Watercolor Society exhibition, Bay St. Girl, among them, especially as Tokyo Express missed the publishing deadline for this issue last year. Had to win it again! :) I'll be the juror of selection for the PWS show next year.

Also in this issue is a great article/interview with Janine Gallizia, by editor Kelly Kane. Some fantastic pics of Janine's work, don't miss it!

Nicholas - I remember the painting based on Caribbean excursions - floating around and grooving on boat life. Seems you are queued up for a splendid '10.. built on the hard work in '09. Taking us out on a good note.... C major 440.

It's always a pleasure to see good art; it's an even bigger pleasure to see good people who make good art succeed and get such recognition. Congratulations, Nick! And happy holidays to you and your girls :)

Bill - aha, actually 440 cycles is an A, a tuning standard...nice to hear some orchestra pit talk in here! I'm digesting Thimbles, will be right over...

Rhonda - good people? There's a little internet hobbit troll out there who won't like that - Nicholas Simmons is evil, haven't you heard?! lol

Billie - good issue, a very interesting article with Janine Gallizia

Sandeep - thanks for posting, tovarish

Yeah, that's a great story that makes me chuckle.
Ah! I'll just have to win it again..heheh!
Well done this year mate, it's been up and down huh? But painting wise you've built a strong position for the next year. I'm bracing myself for what's ahead!
Happy Xmas!

Dake - you have to use a story like that when you can! Next year is going to be good, I have good feelings about 2011 too, and then...run for president!

Annelein - it's nice to meet you and see your great paintings. Yes, snowed in for two days, still waiting on the St. Bernard.
