After a long period of being unable to create major works due to a limited creative environment, Reincarnations finally has a new home and studio! I am still in the beginning stages of setting up, but the future is looking bright. After three years of limited space, I found myself in a position where I was forced to find both new employment and a new place to live, I would have found such a task daunting in the past, but my experiences of the last decade have given me unexpected faith in such things, and this faith was rewarded when I managed to secure both, along with a space that I can rehab into a workshop/studio, where I can actually put my woodworking tools and skills to use once again.
It’s been a long road for me, but things are beginning to look up once again. I should have both my studio and workshop set up within the next 4-6 weeks, and will once again have new works and themes available for order. There will be more updates in the future, so stay tuned!
Believe it or not, I’m still here! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I updated our journal. Or, maybe I can. I’ve been working for some time to restore my studio, and each time I think I have finally achieved my goal, life found a way to pull the rug from under my feet.
Case in point: for the last two plus years, I was working as a property manager in addition to other handyman/artisan work in order to make my bills and pay for the court ordered ransom to my former abuser (another story). The former paid my rent while the latter paid for my other expenses. This went will until the building was sold, and the new owners proceeded to abuse my work ethic, not only creating a hostile work environment, which includes my home, but also to harass me verbally and in writing, what we call libel in legal circles. Now I have to address that issue in the one place sure to trigger my PTSD – a courtroom.
On the upside, I now have room to create more new pieces, as my new job is in a wood shop, where I can make many of the planned pieces and themes that have yet to see the light of day.
Also, it has been brought to my attention our contact form may not be functioning properly. I am still taking orders, and can be reached at: <a href=”mailto:email@example.com”>firstname.lastname@example.org</a> until such time the contact form is working.
Until next time…
I apologize for the lack of posts – the holidays took their toll, and I have been busy of late. There are indeed more new works coming in the future, and I will post them as they become available, including a piece by an associate artist in a currently empty theme. It is still a challenge to paint these days, as our studio space is limited, but I am committed to producing as many creative projects in 2021 as I can. Keep watching our blog, and our Facebook page for more developments!
Until Next time,
With the website being mostly complete, I started working on several projects, and it seems I let time sneak by without posting. My apologies. Most of the galleries are fairly complete now, and the site works on most mobile devices, but I still have a lot of tweaking to do, as always, so please bear with me as I work out the kinks. Most are just formatting refinements on the galleries, but I do have some photos from our previous work that I will scan and add to our pages in the future. In the meantime, there are also some new furniture pieces that will be made available, so please check back with us! There are some exciting new pieces and themes coming soon!
