The Big Reveal 

After many months of playing (and sometimes struggling) with new  3-D collage Begin Again, I'm putting it out into the world. This was by far the most complicated dimensional collage I have created in the past 15 years, as well as the most meaningful.


This collage was created to shine a beckon of light for those that are
            1) in the middle of an ending,  or
            2) who are on the other side of an ending and are rebuilding their                   world, or better yet,
            3) are now celebrating a glorious new beginning.


I am now very grateful that I've experienced all three of these stages, and rejoice that the ending to my "fairy tale" happened in the first place!


As a result, I fully believe that endings are always for our highest good.


No doubt that the end of a relationship can devastate us to our core - this certainly was my experience.  But endings can also be the beginning of a heart opening, joyful adventure, leaving us happier than we ever thought possible.


Let me explain by sharing my personal story of ending, and beginning again.


In 2007, after 31 years of what I thought was a "happy" marriage, I found myself suddenly single and walking on very unsteady ground. The rug was literally pulled out from under me, shattering many of my beliefs about my world and self-worth.  I started questioning things that I had taken for granted only days earlier.


Read the whole story that inspired this collage in my latest blog post.  I promise its a very happy and inspiring ending!

My happy obsession with Instagram

In the event that you don't follow me on Instagram (@catrains_collage) or Facebook, here are highlights of what I shared this past week.



May 2      My darling Robert and I created this “spirit bowl” together at a couples retreat last week. Working together as ONE to create was such a loving and peaceful experience. Now this work of art sits on our mantel as a memory and testiment to our sweet and expanding love.


April 30   You were born to do this ... fly... The words on this collage painting are what I feel about us all. That we are all meant to do something unique and meaningful with our life. The only way to find IT is to be fully in each moment, knowing that EACH moment is our destiny. Moment to moment we are being led to the precious thing we were meant to create and contribute to humanity. 

I accept each moment as my devine destiny, while also fully trusting that I’m being led to something greater still. What were YOU born to do? Where are you being led?


April 28    This collage says....A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and sings it back to you when you forget the words.

So many dear friends have held my “song” when I couldn’t sing it myself. And now it’s my turn to sing it forward for others. Art Prints and the original of this new collage are now available. You might also want to check out the full blog post about the meaning behind this collage painting.
