I figured this was long overdue and surprised he didn't have one yet due to how many members are fans here. You can post any updates, frame jobs, general info about Greg's work. First up via his facebook he is releasing a new print soon for AZUL which is gonna be amazing and one of my personal favorite pieces by him. :notworthy:

not that i'm opposed to this new thread, but there is this:
http://forum.expressobeans.com/viewtopi ... ins#p48002

i'm not sure if the mods would prefer to have that thread stay clean and just feature his listings, or if it's meant to be a discussion zone.

I think that one is just for general listings of new art submitted so I doubt they have a problem with a new one, well hopefully not. 8)

"Azul" is probably my favorite Simkins painting, I'll be sending this print straight to peacedog.

Same here being my favorite by him although Crimson is pretty close. I think Crimson and Azul will complement each other very nicely on a wall together. :pint:

Me too, couldn't decide framed or not, as shipping was the same price. Didn't go for the frame, still not sure if I regret it or not~

Just emailed them asking to upgrade to frame. Might as well. It's probably a simple tasteful frame job. Worth the extra $50. Asked them to send me a pic of how they'll do it. Will post as soon as I get it. AP was a no brainer. :clap:

Framed pic is above. Sent an email as well, only $50 more.

Also, there's no quantity checking on any of the prints. Nothing stopping you from ordering 15 APs.
