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

A Busy Year Ahead

Welcome back!

2024 is looking like it is going to be a busy year.  We are working on a new theme, the first in some time, and a batch of new pieces just waiting to be given a new life.  There are many things being tossed around in relation to our future (and not just about how the world seems to be falling apart).  There may be some exciting news to report in the near future, but I want to work more on these ideas before announcing them officially.
In the meantime, I have added a work around to our contact page until I can edit my site remotely to set up an auto-mailer to our site for future orders.  I will be working to improve our site in the near future.  There are many other projects vying for our time, but we will be sure to let everyone know when the new work on the site is complete.  We have been around for many years, and have no plans on giving up on our artistic dreams any time in the near future.

So, be sure to check in on us from time to time…there is much more to come.

~Namaste

Back to Work

Greetings, Everyone!

After not having updated our blog for a year, I have to be honest and say I do not even really know if our fans still follow us.  Life has been a hectic mess for a while, and it has taken considerable work to make things stable again, and the effort has left little energy or time to devote to artistic projects.  I am not one to give up, however, and have remained dedicated to the artistic vision which began all those many years ago when I began this site.

I have been putting more emphasis on the writing side lately, and have completed two additional novels since the last website update and additions to our painted furniture portfolio.  Writing takes considerably less set-up and space than my painting, and it was the best way to maintain my creativity during the stress of moving and beginning a new day job.  The time has come (more like way overdue) for another website revision, as well as producing some new artwork.  I have several pieces ready to be transformed, and will be introducing at least one new theme to our portfolio in the coming months.

Another casualty during my long hiatus was our contact form.  There are some particularities when working with WordPress and forms, and it will take me a bit to get that worked out.  In the meantime, I have included a mail link on our contact page.  It’s not a perfect solution, but it will at least provide a means of contact until I can make the necessary programming changes necessary to make the mail system functional.

Promotion has also been a weak point of mine, but I am working to change that, for both my writing and art sites.  I feel it’s about time that I make my creative endeavors my main career focus, and the only way to achieve that is to put in the effort.

So, if you are a newcomer to our site, then welcome, and if you are a returning fan, rest assured there is a lot more to come in the future.

Until then, be kind to yourself and others.

~Namaste

A New Home

Greetings!

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!

Until then,

~Namaste
