The Reincarnations Painted Furniture Website was created in 1997 by Michael Vain, who began learning the rudimentary elements of HTML and web design. Since that time, the website has evolved to become a joint artistic venture between Michael, and his wife Michelle, who continue to hone their graphic and technical skills.
Since its creation, the Reincarnations website has earned a number of various web awards. As the website, and Reincarnations, continues to evolve, we will add any accolades we earn here.

Thank you for applying for my Award ! I enjoyed the opportunity of reviewing your site *Reincarnations - Painted Furniture
& Other Artistic Creations*, and wish to congratulate you for the very well job you have done !
This is a wonderful site with hand painted, one of a kind furniture and crafts and many other gifts. Yours goal is to do more
than simply create a piece of painted furniture, but to create a work of functional art. That brings more happiness and inspiration

Reincarnations - Painted Furniture & Other Artistic Creations
Awarded January 15, 2011
Evaluator: F. Hornischer, owner of Timelines Future Award.
Reincarnations was named to reflect the transformational nature of the artistic process. Thought is changed into a physical reality, and the materials used in that process undergo a physical change as well, becoming something new, a manifestation of will. This concept fits perfectly with the artwork shown. Come and visit the magic art of Michael Vain and his partner Michelle Rose. On his site 'Reincarnations' Michael Vain uses wonderful colors, an easy navigation, and he has created a beautiful design and layout. The site is made with a W3C valid code and css. The main navigation is on the left side, with additional submenus, and a navigation at the bottom of every page. The interested visitor can read all about the artist and his partner Michelle Rose, the mission of the Reincarnations Studio, and the art.
All items are presented with illustrating pictures. The pieces of hand painted furniture are really avantgarde. Have a look at Mermaid's Treasure bed, the Tropical Reef armoire, the Dreamers Moon bench, painted chair designs, treasure chests, all kind of furniture are extraordinary indeed, you will see nowhere else. Michael Vain and Michelle Rose show painted furniture items with paintings which have a magic flair that could be from one of those magic Harry Potter movies.
I would like also to take my dinner at one of the artists' designed dining tables, and have my computer placed on a colorful desk. All items have also wonderful names like 'Dream Castle', 'Tropical Reef', 'Spring Meadow' and so on. New pieces are always added to every page. Every item shown you can see also in a full view. Quotes of Einstein and other great thinkers complete the presentation. All items you can see also in a gallery, and there is a link to a news and blog site. Congratulations, the site 'Reincarnations' wins Timelines Future Award in the Category 3 "Future Art"- a website showing future art that will exist for many years.
