LOVE KNOTS – COMPLICATED? – Nah!!!

posted in: Blog | 0

It’s my birthday today and yes, I just got a t-shirt from a girlfriend that shows that my heart is complicated at the moment!  What’s to hide? The sooner you meet with your emotions and give them the life they are asking for, the sooner you resolve it.  Our problems and our solutions to solving our problems can be blessings to others. This approach to doing it in an artistic way has some very unique features to it and can be so enjoyable at the same time.  This recent Heart that I painted and added paper college into was a journey with a blessing. I am honoring this moment in time instead of stuffing it and repressing it which could have very negative effects in our body.

Welcome….LOVE KNOTS!

Expressing and Healing through Art

Clear Open Heart
Clear Open Heart

This is one of my most recent commissioned pieces of art using my new techniques of combining watercolor and my handmade paper as well as the pop out copperwired, paperwrapped elements as seen in the flower, leaves and wings.  The beauty of this peice was in it’s creation as the client went along with me using her throw pillows as inspiration for a three piece floral series for her living room.  She had no idea what I was going to do and even though we knew that that general design was going to be the middle piece, I was learning the self healing art of Reiki and that design just seemed to have similar elements of the Chakras of the body so I combined the two concepts adding the Chakra energy colors into the art.  It just had the most wonderful flow and creativity was at its peak!  This is what I mean about expressing and healing through art!!!  There’s an intention in the art…a healing intention!

 

The best part is that now this image is available as Box Sets of Blank Notecards, six (6) cards and six (6) envelopes for $15.00 through the website.

What is the LOVE and ABUNDANCE Series that I am starting?

The LOVE and ABUNDANCE Series

LoveNAbundance1_1_3As I have been developing my new leaf technique, I thought, “How cool to make leaves out of foreign currency and make International money trees!”  It wasn’t exactly manifesting until I took a good look at the concept of my idea and reflected on what my real intention was behind it.  I thought more and more about it and I have come to the conclusion that what I really wanted to do was open this project up to the world.  I wanted people to see it and be involved in it’s creation.  I want to transmit a message too, that abundance only comes when you put love into something without making the goal about money.  I have lived in a few countries, travelled the world and dealt in Foreign currency.  Many people actually save bills as momentos. The fun part of this project is when I display an on going project in public and trade art gifts for people’s foreign currency.  I get to interact with people, listen to some of the stories of their travels, share some of mine and trade a new bill that I have never seen before to enrich the creation. On this day I was demonstrating at Carina Cellars in Los Olivos. Please contact me if you can envision a live demonstration.

Trees Come Alive

posted in: Blog | 0

Ellaborating on the new theme “Alive in Paradise,” I have taken the design of trees to a new level, a level where the trees come to life. I have sculpted copper wire leaves, wrapped them in handmade paper and inserted them over some ground collage work and into the art for for stability. Then I texture them and blend them so the connection flows. Very exciting!

What new creations have come up since my new theme “Alive in Paradise?”

Sculpted Handmade Paper Flowers

 

Collaging for 20 years still continues to be fun but making some of the elements come alive by sculpting them is even more fun and very exciting. Here I have formed copper wire modules, such as petals, in this case, wrapped them in  handmade paper and inserted them through the picture for added security.

These are then textured in my usual didactic way.  This manual labor is what I bring to you in this photo.

Next, I have added copper wire paper wrapped leaves and inserted them into the border and also textured them to blend with the art.  This feature protrudes from the art giving it that extra life. This art is not just a paper collage anymore. It is a handmade paper mixed media assemblage.

What does it mean to paint with intention?

posted in: Blog | 0

aaPainting with intention means to paint something one means to paint.

It may be a concept.  The intention to portray that concept will flow out and transmit energetically as one paints.  It transmits by the colors one chooses or by the way the strokes are laid.  The visual effect will be captured.

Love Gets Around – Andrea Beloff

LOVE GETS AROUND

This video, LOVE GETS AROUND, represents Andrea's YouTube video, demonstrating what Painting Your Heart Out is all about...setting an intention from the heart and expressing it through painting. Feeling something is one thing but putting it into some sort of art format gives it a life or a release of a special nature, much like writing a song or poem. Andrea has designed other workshops around this project and are available in her Studio.
