Bernie Taupin, the world famous lyricist of Elton John, will be displaying his artwork entitled "Beyond Worlds" next month at the Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery, from August 2-25.
Taupin's art, both written and painted, is praised by many. Elton John—perhaps Taupin's biggest fan—credits his success to the lyricist. "Without Bernie, basically, there wouldn't have been an Elton John," he says. "I'm just a purveyor of Bernie's feelings, Bernie's thoughts."
Thinksport is revolutionizing the way we think about the fitness products that drive us to be our best.
Founder Kevin Brodwick was inspired to start his line of health- and environmentally-friendly sporting accessories after his work at a biological testing lab, where he learned about the dangers of chemicals commonly held in many household products. As a result, Brodwick launched Thinkbaby and Thinksport, innovative lines that include non-toxic yoga mats, water bottles, baby bottles and bowls. And this year, Thinksport has released another ground breaking product that nearly every Texan needs during these sun scorched summer months— SPF 50 LIVESTRONG sunscreen.
