  7. I never met him in person but we facebook messaged many times. He was a funny person and a great artist. I hope his wife and daughter well.

  8. So very sad to have lost this amazingly talented man. He was an inspirational watercolorist and a huge loss to the art world.

  9. Nick was the one who convinced me I was a talented painter. He is the main reason I did a successful show in the arts precinct of this city.

    He is the main reason I nearly got to Shang-Hai.

    He is the one who introduced me to Carol Carter.

    We corresponded a lot. He was a mate. A mate.

    God Bless you Nick. I love you, mate.

    Joel.

  11. A tragedy. Nick was a friend to all who put their hand out to him. The lilly is my favorite painting of Nick's--I always told him that was his pinnacle. I saw the painting of OLGA in the watercolor competition and was captivated by the color balance and intensity shifts that can only be seen in real life. Rest in peace, Nick, Damn ! you were a fine man

  14. So sad. I found an email from Nicholas simmons today. He wrote it to me in 2009 with the following message:

    "Build up you self esteem to the level that might seem unwarranted. This will help you ignore both positive and negative responses to your paintings. Both are usually misguided, since they come from the outside. Be your most severe and devastating critic, while never doubting that you are the best thing since sliced bread."

  15. Such a loss to the art world. His paintings took watercolors to a whole new dimension. I took up painting after seeing some of his works. Of course the greatest grief is for his family.
    We will miss him
