Another progress photo of a new piece of painted furniture from the studio. This set of end tables will feature a peacock theme, and will be available for sale upon completion.




Peacock End Tables with Mirrored Design



This is the first new original, non-commissioned work to be produced in the studio for some time, and hopefully the first of many new works to be taken to local artisan contemporary craft shows. It has been several years since Reincarnations has been on the artisan show circuit, but hope remains strong that we will be able to begin attending them again next year. Of course, we will post dates and locations to any venues in which we will have a booth when the schedule has been finalized.
In order to attend these shows, I will be designing and constructing a new display booth, one of the many details that need to be checked off the list. We’ve had to move several times over the past few years, and were not able to keep up our show schedule as a result. With ay luck, I will be finding a new home for our studio within the next few months, and will be able to make our artwork available in these venues once again.

Hope all our watchers and fans are having a wonderful summer! More pictures to come, so visit us often!

Several new projects are on the way, and I posted photos of the primed pieces earlier this week. Today, I’d like to share some progress photos on both the mandala focal table, and the peacock end table set.

I’ve wanted for some time to be able to work on pieces and themes we have available, but have yet to feature examples on our site, and now it’s finally happening! This is only the start – there are plenty more new works of painted furniture to follow!

New Projects Preview

I’ve been promising for some time to give a preview of some new projects, so it was time to post some pictures. These are three new tables that are currently being painted – a round focal table that will feature a mandala theme, and a matching set of end tables that will be painted with colorful peacocks.

Our painted furniture photo of the day is the back detail from our whimsical wildflower chair commission, completed last summer.




I’m especially pleased at the detail in the monarch butterfly, which is one of the things that separate our painted furniture from that found elsewhere.


Here is another of our Painted Furniture Photos of the Day! This is another detail shot of the leg of a whimsical wildflower chair commission we received last summer.



We hope you enjoy it, and are having a great summer!

Our latest painted furniture photo of the day is from our whimsical wildflower chair, completed last summer. Here we see another view of the legs from this highly detailed and colorful work.

New Projects – July 2016

I’ve been working on three new table projects, and will be posting more pictures on their progress soon, in addition to work in progress pictures from our last commission, a whimsical wildflower chair. Now that I have steady employment, there is less time to update our blog, but there will be lots more to come this year, and I will continue to expand our website and available themes.
Speaking of themes, the new tables mentioned earlier, which I just finished priming, will feature two themes that are available through the site, but which have yet to be featured – namely, a mandala table, and a matching pair of peacock end tables, so be sure to visit our blog often!
After many trials and tribulations, Reincarnations is getting nearer to realizing the return to the contemporary craft shows and regular offerings of our unique painted furniture and other creative projects which have made us unique. It is my desire to have a new studio for our work within the next couple months, and to return to the artisan craft show schedule that has been denied to me in the past several years by the end of the year. I’ll be sure to post regular updates as to our progress in these areas.
I hope all our watchers and fans are having a lovely summer!

~Namaste


New Projects Coming Soon

Although I have yet to find a new home for the Reincarnations Studio, I have begun working on several new pieces of painted furniture that will be available for sale later in the summer. These will be focal tables – one single and a matched set – that will feature completely new themes that we have yet to introduce on our website.
Reincarnations has faced numerous challenges throughout the years, but have manage to keep going despite the obstacles imposed by them, and will continue to do so.
It has indeed been a hard year. Between the hardships caused by both the states of Ohio and North Carolina, it has been difficult to continue producing the vision that has set Reincarnations apart from others in our field, but the studio, and the vision, has persevered, and I have learned much during that time. Most of those hardships were caused by a combination of sheer incompetence on the part of these states judicial process, combined with corruption – which, when brought together, is never a pretty picture for the common man. Still, I have managed to rise above these setbacks, and have never lost sight of my long-term goals, both professional and personal. Once the final hoops have been jumped through, I will again be able to focus my creative energies into the studio. So, while 2016 has proven to be a troublesome and costly year, I am determined to make the coming months, as well as 2017, a turning point for my creative endeavors.
So stay tuned – more projects, pictures, and artwork is on its way!

Update – June 2016

The search for a new studio continues. Things did get off to a rocky start this year, due in no small part to the incompetence on the part of North Carolina. I had thought the state would be a good place to set up the studio, but as anyone who had been following the news will know, the government there has a lot to learn in the areas of both law and humanity.
Since that time, however, things have stabilized and improved. I have moved back to Virginia, and now have a more stable base in which to search for a more permanent location in which to house our studio. I have been working on replenishing both art supplies and furniture, and will begin to produce new pieces within the next month. New designs to fill previously unseen themes will be coming to the website soon, barring any further interference by those who have nothing better to do than to create more headaches for hard-working individuals. In this, North Carolina bears a striking resemblance to Ohio, and I will not be spending any more of my money to contribute to the economies of what I have learned are disgraces to this country.
That being said, the rest of this year is becoming more promising all the time. Although Reincarnations does not have a permanent studio, this has never stopped it from producing wonderful works of functional art in the past, and it will not now. Orders for custom painted furniture can still be placed with the assurance they will be produced to the standards that have placed it at the forefront of its medium, always pushing creative boundaries while adhering to the highest standards in both customer service and workmanship.
So fear not, brave fans and followers! There is more art to come!

~Namaste
