I have had a total and complete REBIRTH and by that I mean that I was plucked out of what to me had been the demise of my existence. I underwent huge changes in my life, my status, my geographic location, my philosophy of life and most significantly, my purpose and it all is reflected in the NEW ART I developed these last two and a half years. Let alone that I went through an additional 5 year forced Sabbatical that I used to move out of the Tropical Landscape Paper Collage Niche, that so defined me, and I consequently explored various media combinations by which I got to the Love And Abundance Series. It has been a journey of tremendous growing pains to say the least. I am grateful for all the changes! I love the new ME and I am thrilled to be here in my NOW, actually.
This Opening Reception of the Love and Abundance Series took place on May 18th, 2013, 6-10pm on Gallery Night at the Bird Road Art District, at what was my new Gallery/Studio space on 4678 SW 72nd Ave. Miami, FL 33155.
Andrea Beloff FINE ART
I wanted the whole world to see it…I don’t ask for much!!!! So I wrote,
“Please don’t miss it. I may not be all ready as I would like to be but you will be amazed no matter what.” I hadn’t quite finished The Joy of Love and Abundance but I’m proud to say, it’s now finished.
First, I found the LOVE or really, the LOVE found me, and then I had the bright idea to manifest something that resembled abundance. Hence the journey through the much treasured Foreign Currency of the world. It is a world in itself and I am honoring it in my own artisctic way by plucking out the beauty and meaning and poetically transforming it into something beautiful. I find great meaning in it also because in my trees or my world, the diverse countries coexist in harmony, like Heaven on Earth.
I just wanted to take a few minutes to explain how the Love found Me: God found me. God loves us so much first that He goes after his children. Acceptance by God is a gift and I received the gift. Yes, He loves us that much that when we get so lost, He comes around to find us. And I revisited all I knew about God and learned that He came to earth as man, Jesus and then I took some in depth Bible Study classes and I found the missing links to my existence and I was saved. I was saved from my own death and given forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus Christ. I knew i had been touched but as I learned more and more, I was deeply moved, deeply moved. Isaiah 53: 10 It was the Lord’s wish to crush him and cause him to suffer. All of this was for our sins of the past, the present and the future. God’s plan was impeccable. And my faith was more and more firmly planted and continues to be as He shows me continuously how He never abandons me and how the more I are with Him, the more He is with me and there is such comfort in this. I live to be comforted by this. It gives me strength and conviction and it makes me want to tell everyone how Great is our God and the important things to know.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ, our Lord.
