playing with water

nicholas simmons

this painting "fresh sushi" was painted by the artist nicholas simmons. (i have reproduced this here without his permission). it won a major prize this year at the NWS. it is one of the most exciting pieces of art i have ever seen.
let me say this about nicholas. not only is he a brilliant artist - but he gives of himself to help and encourage other artists.
the fact that he likes my work literally blows me away! thanks nicholas!


this is a sketch of sandra. sandra is also known as "sexy swedish babe". you can follow her exploits at her flickr page.
i am on holidays for the next few weeks and i will be taking this piece further
i asked sandra for her permission to paint her. she was chuffed and loves the sketch.
