News – May 2022

Greetings all!

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:contactus@reincarnations.com”>contactus@reincarnations.com</a> until such time the contact form is working.

Until next time…

News – January 2021

Greetings,

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,

~Namaste

News – November 2020

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!

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…

~Namaste

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!

~Namaste

 

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!

~Namaste

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…

~Namaste

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
