real-simple

Red Citra - Part of a series of many paintings created to be used for various beer bottle labels for a locally-owned Michigan brewery, StoneHouse Brewery. I’ve been handling their labels as new flavors come out for years now, but I thought it would be fun to share some of them here for the first time. This one’s real simple, but pleasing to look at.

I’m the original creator of this painting. I’m so happy if you like it, but please don’t repost it. Reblog this post instead, thanks! :”)

The truth is that I need the stimulus of other people. Alone, over my dead fire, I tend to see the thin places in my own stories. The real novelist, the perfectly simple human being, could go on, indefinitely, imagining. He would not integrate, as I do. He would not have this devastating sense of grey ashes in a burnt-out grate.

Real Simple swimsuit fashion story, 2013 - Very excited to share the first photograph of my fashion story shot in Miami with the amazing Real Simple crew. A really wonderful collaboration. Digital May edition is out now, with print on newsstands in the coming days. More to come.

I know I’ve been off the grid a bit in internet-world.  Many more updates to come soon.  Life, Work & Love are in full bloom.
