Website Update 2 – July 2020

Greetings!

Well, the site finally has all the galleries installed, despite fighting against the new WordPress update messing things up, and the constant stress of dealing with a corrupt Domestic Relations system in Virginia, a problem that is apparently widespread not only in this country, but in many places around the world.  Fortunately, I’ve managed to survive so far – although I do now suffer from additional health issues as a result, including permanent nerve damage, as a direct result of the bias and corruption within that horrible mess they dare to call a ‘justice system’.  Still, I have never given up on my dream, and will continue to create new works, and produce the best hand painted furniture for my clients seen anywhere.

New works are on the way, as well as new additions to the galleries of old works, as I have finally managed to reclaim most of the possessions I was forced to leave in storage, including my print portfolio, which I had thought was lost…so lots of new stuff coming!

Until next time…

Website Update – July 2020

Greetings!

The newest version of our site is almost complete.  Yes, there are still ‘under construction’ pages, as there are more possible themes than I have yet to paint, but that leaves plenty of room for even more photo galleries of our work.  Then, I can get to work on creating new works of unique hand painted furniture!

This current revision has been some time in the making. Personal issues, the greatest of which all surrounded the chaos created by my wife, who I believe suffers from a severe personality disorder and sociopathy, and the ongoing divorce have labored to keep me from pursuing my artistic desires, but these are but distractions, and my drive is more than a match for such petty things.  So keep tuning in, as I will be updating the site with new hand painted furniture pieces as I complete setting up my new studio.  The last page, our unique hand painted vintage projects, should be finished within the next day or two, bringing to a close a hiatus of several years.

The future is going to be a colorful one!

Studio Update – June 2020

Those who have followed me over the years are likely aware of the trials and tribulations I have faced over the last decade, mainly due to the actions of my soon-to-be ex-wife, who I have come to understand is a talented but troubled soul. Now, after so many years, I have finally managed to retrieve many of the tools and possessions lost to me (not all, and most of what I lost is irreplaceable), and can finally turn to rebuilding the Reincarnations Studio as well as the website.
You might be wondering why an artist would continue to struggle for so long for an enterprise that is only occasionally profitable. The answer is contained within the question: drive is what separates artists from people who can draw or paint well. It is passion that drives them, and the passion to create that defines what they are. I am, and have always been, passionate about my creative endeavors, and will continue to strive to produce the best, most original painted furniture found anywhere in the US. it will take some time to get things arranged, but the process has begun, so stay tuned!

Website News – June 2020

Greetings,
With the pandemic restrictions still in place, I have found the time to do some long-overdue work on the Reincarnations Website. Work on the site overhaul was interrupted some two years ago, and a good many of the galleries were yet to be included. I’ve begun working on the site again, and more pages and galleries will finally be making their way back to the site over the next several weeks, so stay tuned!

Update – June 2020

Greetings!

Despite the hardships caused to me by my wife and the Virginia court system, I am rebuilding my studio, and will continue to make improvements to Reincarnations.com.
New pieces are on the way, and photos will be posted when the new works become available.
I am currently open to commissions, and invite anyone looking for custom painted furniture to use the handy contact page.
Until next time…

Update May 2020

Greetings!

It’s been a year since I posted last, and I can say at last that I have established a temporary studio, and will be adding new pieces as they are completed. New work has been completed, and the section will be added soon. Links will be provided when they are finished.
I hope everyone is staying safe during this trying time.

Setbacks and Heartbreak pt. 2

There are setbacks, and then there are setbacks. All of us face crisis; mine seem to come every couple of years, but never have I faced the intensity, the sheer gravity, of so many crisis-level stress-inducing events happening at the same time before. Nor have I ever had to deal with someone so determined to make my life the opposite of what I wanted it to be before.hence the gap in posts. I am back, however, and have added the first new page to the site in awhile. I will continue to produce whatever art I can, and to update the site content, as best I can as I once again deal with pitfalls of life. Meanwhile, the search for a new studio continues. I have added the first new content to the site in over a year. Bonus points will be given if you can guess where – just kidding. There is no points. But our Murals page looks great!

Until Next Time,

~Namaste

Setbacks and Heartbreaks

Just when I thought I had found us a new home and studio, when I thought everything was going to finally settle down and I could get back to work, when I thought I would finally manage to enjoy the fruits of my 60-70 hour work weeks (i.e. a stable home for my wife and little girl), I was dealt yet another blow.
Those familiar with my life know that it has been turbulent. I have had to give up several homes due to personal difficulties involving my relationship with my wife and one-time Reincarnations artist, Michelle, and this has happened yet again. I will spare my watchers the details, although I can say that it is now apparent that the former and present turmoil is a pattern of behavior of which I have been a victim for the past six years, a pattern that has included intense emotional abuse that culminated on more than one occasion in the loss of my home and being separated from my precious little girl.
At this point in time, my entire future, as well as my daughter’s, is uncertain. I have been struggling for the last six years to restore some sort of stability into my life, and secure a future for myself and those I care for, and this has once again been thrown into chaos. I will do my best to keep updating the status of my artistic endeavors, despite what life has chosen to throw at me.
It is my hope that I can secure a brighter future for both myself and my little one, but beyond that, I have no idea what the future may have in store. I ask for your prayers and good wishes going forward, and hope that I can finally break free of the troubles that have plagued me for nearly a decade.
Until next time,

~Namaste

A Work in Progress, Pt. 3

I am still working on our newest website revision – the theme pages are now completed, and the furniture types are being completed as quickly as possible. The info section and individual galleries fo our painted furniture pieces will follow as time allows. Working within the confines of WordPress is much slower than coding by hand, and this, combined with a six-day work week, has caused the completion date for the site to extend into the early part of 2018. When completed, we hope that the utilization of the blogging platform will advance our ranking for Google, and restore us to the first page of results for our search keywords, which we enjoyed for a number of years before Google apparently sold their souls, and gave our normal ranking to blog sites and single articles that had little or nothing to offer in terms of actual painted furniture.
There are still some key galleries and features yet to come, not the least of which is our contact form, which we will have up and running as soon as possible. So check back often for the latest developments and additions.
Until next time..

A Work In Progress pt 2

We are continuing to rebuild the Reincarnations Painted Furniture website as quickly as possible. Please forgive us for the broken links, as we currently have limited time for web design. More pages will continue to be added until we have galleries of all our completed pieces, as well as Info and Decor sections. Stay tuned – a new site and new artwork are on the way!
