Transitory Flight

Greetings,

Again, another month managed to sneak by without giving me time to post, much less create any new painted furniture or videos. We were recently made to begin the moving process for our studio, and this has taken up a great deal of my time and energy, especially considering I had to work this around a full time job. I have found myself on more than one occasion these last few weeks wondering how I have ever manage to acquire this much stuff. This has forced a delay in the new painted furniture projects we have scheduled for the upcoming year, an occurrence that has been too frequent as of late, and one that has been a point of personal aggravation for longer than I care to admit.
With luck, this latest interruption will not last more than a few more weeks, and should our plans work out as intended, this will be our final stop in our long quest for a permanent studio space. We should begin work on our new studio within the next few weeks. With luck, this will be the end of July at the latest, and then we will have a ton of new videos and works of painted furniture to share going forward. I know it may appear I have been lax in my creative duties, but I will be devoting much more time and creative energy in this and my writing in the future. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience and patronage, and hope you will follow our channel on YouTube.

Until Next time,

~Namaste

Busy Times

Greetings!

Things have been rather busy lately; I now work ten hour days in my ‘real job’, and am then rushing to work on finishing a side job in order to level the financial hole I went into during my recent job change.I spent the Memorial Day weekend putting down about 1000 sq ft. of flooring, and am working to finish the job before my little one comes to visit. In between these jobs and sleep, I’ve managed to complete an audio recording of my second novel, as well as our second video for Youtube. Our new painted furniture channel can be found here.
I will be making more videos soon, depending on our impending change of studio, which should be happening within the next few months, so visit us soon. More changes are coming soon!

Until Next Time,

~Namaste

New Painted Furniture Video

Greetings!

I apologize for the lateness of this post; my already hectic schedule has doubled down, and just about every minute of my day is now filled with one project or another. I have begun work on our second video, which will be the first in a series detailing the many themes found on our site, and should be able to release it by the end of the week. I know four weeks between videos is somewhat disappointing, but I have many other duties and responsibilities, and have to schedule my time as best I can. It may take a short time, but I believe I will be able to post on a more regular basis within the next couple months.
In the meantime, be sure to stop by our video channel on YouTube. We have several painted furniture projects to complete in the coming months, and I cannot wait to share them with you.

Until Next Time,
~Namaste

YouTube Painted Furniture Channel

Greetings!

We have established our painted furniture channel on YouTube with the release of our first video. Our second video will feature the beginning of a new project: a spring meadow dining table and chair set. We have recorded the first section, and will be recording the next segment during the last weekend in March. We will be doing a variety of projects in the future, so be sure to check us out. Of course, we will be posting our step by step photos and portfolio examples as these new projects are completed.
It will take some time before we can establish a regular posting schedule for our videos; daily life has a way of springing its share of surprises lately, and we are looking to find a new studio within the next few months. Meanwhile, however, we will continue to do our best to bring new segments (I’m not a fan of the word ‘content’) to the best of my ability. We hope you will tune in and enjoy.

Until next time,

~Namaste

Our First Video

Greetings!

We are pleased to announce we will be posting our first YouTube video on March 24th. I am aware I am somewhat late to the social video front, but we finally made it. Future videos will show the progress of our various painted furniture projects, painting tips and demonstrations, and more, as I teach my little one how I create works of functional art, and other contemporary craft projects. I hope this will expose more people to our studio, and possibly bring attention from those looking to commission pieces in our style.
The link to our introductory video is below:

Introduction

We hope you will join us in our continuing artistic journey!

Coming Soon…

…to a screen near you!

Greetings!

My daughter and I have recorded our first video for YouTube! I have started the Reincarnations Painted Furniture channel on that site, and will be creating content for it on a regular basis going forward. Of course, this will not be a professional production – I don’t have assistants and producers, or even a cameraman, other than myself, so it is certain the videos may lack a certain polish, but what it lacks in bells and whistles will be more than compensated for in terms of material. My daughter will be learning to create painted furniture in the Reincarnations style, and we will be sharing her artistic journey, along with tips, demos, and complete projects. It will most definitely be a home-grown project, but I hope those with interest in our work will join us. It is not my purpose to ever monetize the channel; we just want to share our passion to a wider audience. With luck, we will be able to eventually move to a larger studio, but we will always strive to keep our channel personal and fun. I will publish a link to our channel when I complete the editing process. I realize we are a bit slow to utilize the technology at our disposal, but those who know us know the reasons behind such a slow delay, one I hope we can put behind us once we begin posting regular videos.

Until then,

~Namaste

Returning to Form

Hello!

Well, in case anyone hasn’t noticed, I have returned to regular updates to the Reincarnations Painted Furniture website and blog. It has been a long, slow recovery from the damage done by my ex (and my stupidity in believing any of the b.s. in the first place), but the worst of the damage is past, and the return to form has been long in coming, but I am finally making headway. As some may have noticed, I’ve trimmed the site of all its fat, and will addressing the two remaining problems soon. This will include a reworking of our contact page, as well as a different approach to displaying the galleries of various painted furniture and other artworks we have created.
Also, we will be launching a new (to us) promotional endeavor I think people will respond to in a positive way. More news on that soon.
So, yes, there are many more changes to come, and despite the amount of work involved, I am excited to begin this new undertaking. I let the site languish for far too long, and have begun to put the necessary energy back into my creative endeavors.
All in all, it’s about time.

Until Next Time,

~Namaste

Website Update: Feb. 2024

Greetings!

Looking over the data for my site, I discovered to little surprise it has been 4 years since I have done any serious updates to the Reincarnations site.  A good amount of that time was spent dealing with the devastating consequences of allowing myself to be drawn into a relationship with someone possessing a serious and dangerous personality disorder.  These effects were severe, from financial to emotional to physical damage.  I have managed to surmount most of these, though some of the latter two effects will last me for life, and have begun the healing process.  Part of getting back to the person I was and need to be is my need to create, which is why I have begun revamping the site in preparation for the new hand painted furniture projects I have planned for the coming year.

I have already begun making some small changes designed to boost the SEO rankings for Reincarnations – Hand Painted Furniture & Other Artistic Creations.  This site was once on the front page of everyone’s favorite surveillance tool/search engine, but after the change in the algorithm, we were buried under tons of sponsored results.  Even this small change requires a good number of hours, inserting information where it is needed.  One example is the alt description for images.  There are over 800 images used on our site, and it is necessary to edit them all.  And that is just one item on the list.

The changes planned for this site going forward are fairly extensive, and will take some time to implement, but I feel the result will be well worth the effort.  I hope you will join us as we begin anew our artistic journey.

Until Next Time,

~Namaste

Website & Art News, 2-1-24

Greetings!

It has been a busy last few months, and the momentum has no signs of slowing any time in the near future,  This is a good thing, as it means the healing process from the disastrous marriage I suffered through has definitively begun.

There are a good many changes on the horizon for all my creative endeavors, all of them positive, and all designed to reclaim our former place on the major search engine, and spread our message of positively creativity to the world at large. The only issue will be if I can summon the energy to keep up with all the many tasks required of me.  With the acquisition of a new job, however, the chances are this will be easier than originally anticipated, as my new position is not as physically draining as my last.

One of the major projects currently on my to-do list is the long awaited overhaul of our website.  For this website revision, I will not be changing the graphics or color, but will instead attempt to optimize out website for mobile devices, and will incorporate a new slider and design to showcase our many artworks on these devices.

More changes are on the way, and I will announce them as they are closer to being made into reality. I can say I am working on some ideas to increase the exposure of the site and our art to the public, and am excited at the prospect.  I will have more announcements on this in the near future, so visit us often!

Until Next Time-

~Namaste

Update: January 2024

Hello again!

As I stated in my latest posts, there are going to be some exciting changes coming to Reincarnations this year, which promises to be the busiest for me in some time,  I have started a new day job, which should allow me more time and considerably more energy to devote to my artistic passions.  Within the next few months, I am hoping to move, and this will be the second to last move I have to make.  I should be able to set up a more permanent studio.  I am working to create space for the painting of several new projects in the near future, along with a new campaign to widen our audience, a development I will be announcing with more details when it is closer to realization.  This is in preparation for a slew of new pieces that will be completed this year.  Along with new planned revisions to the website, it is the goal to reclaim Reincarnations position in the search engines and among our peers in the world of contemporary artisan crafts.

It’s going to be an exciting year, and I hope you will join us for our continuing adventure.

Until next time,

~Namaste
