Cat Rains ♥️ArtForYourHeart  🦋Finally a full-time artist after traveling 12 years for my day gig, where I created art FROM every hotel room! 🦋Download FREE heart-filled collage🔻🔻🔻

What is something YOU would love to do,⠀
but most likely never will?⠀
🏐♥️⠀
For me, I’ve dreamed of playing competitive ⠀
beach volleyball for the past 30 years.⠀
.⠀
Don’t ask me why, but I’ve thought that would ⠀
be a fun thing to do, and with training,⠀
I could be good at it.⠀
.⠀
The closest I got to this was playing team walleyball⠀
(volleyball on a racket ball court) in my 20’s⠀
.⠀
However I was always the girl that others stepped in front of to hit the ball because my chances of getting the ball over the net were slim!⠀
.⠀
At one point in my 30’s, I had a friend help me learn how to spike the ball, but never got farther than that.⠀
.⠀
I’m pretty sure that this fantasy is going to ⠀
remain a fantasy!⠀
🏐♥️⠀
So how about YOU?⠀
.⠀
What is something YOU would love to do,⠀
but most likely never will?⠀
.⠀
Please share to let us know how much we have in common through the dreams that most likely will⠀
never be!⠀
🏐♥️⠀
This detail of an abstract heart painting is part of growing collection of happy experiments!⠀
.⠀
One day soon, I just might find new homes for them,⠀
but for now, they are part of my private collection!⠀
🏐♥️⠀

If YOU could only eat TWO things for the rest of your life,
what would those 2 things be?
🍈
No question for me -
it would it be fried oysters and key lime pie!
.
EVERYTIME I see either of these on a restaurant menu,
I’m absolutely compelled to order it.
🍈
How about YOU?
What 2 foods would you choose if they were all you could eat for the rest of your life?
.
Please share to help us get to know each other at a whole new level!
🍈
This abstract painting is one of my many happy experiments, and in some strange way inspired today’s question!

What is YOUR favorite sound?
The one that lights you up when you hear it?
🦅🏍
I asked my husband this and he said an engine,
especially from a motorcycle.
.
For me it’s the sound of ANY bird.
.
How about YOU?
What sound makes your heart smile when you
hear it?
🦅🏍
This collage painting, “Go for it”, is available to support your journey to your deepest heart’s desire. Click the link in my profile at @thehotelartist for more details on how to make this cutie yours.

Is anyone else at a turning point in their journey?
.
If YOU are, please respond with “I’m with you”!
♥️
For the past few months, I’ve been playing and experimenting with different art techniques for the purpose of expanding my artistic voice.
.
I’ve tried painting abstracts and flowers,
as well as new ways to combine collage and paint,
and adding encaustic on top!
.
I’ve loved doing it all,
and I feel like I’m on the verge of discovering where I want to focus my artistic energy.
.
I literally feel like I’ll turn a corner any day now,
and magically find what I’ve been searching for all along.
♥️
Have YOU been in this turning point place.
or are you there now?
.
Let’s join hands to support each other as we collectively move through our turning point moment.
.
If YOU get what I’m talking about, please respond with
“I with you”.
♥️
This picture is one of my many happy experiments!
♥️

Did you know that TODAY is World Collage Day?!??
🌎
Even though I’ve been obsessed with playing with paint for the past 2 years, recently I’ve been going back to where I started, creating collages.
.
I’m still exploring and expanding my artistic voice,
and might continue to do this forever,
but something in my heart tells me that collage will always be at the center of my work.
.
Stayed tuned, this story is far from over!
🌏
This collage painting, “And then she flew”, is from my last collection “Take flight”. Although this one is sold, there are several hidden beauties that are waiting for a good home.
.

What does the term “midlife” mean to YOU?
🎉
My friend Peter Fritz from @midlifetribe recently asked me about my journey through midlife for his inspiring Podcast, asking me many profound questions including this question.
.
So odd to be asked about my experience of
“midlife” since I have never related to this term as it relates to myself.
.
In fact, I relate to myself as if I’m in my 30s or young 40s, rather than my biological age (click on my profile link to see what that is 😉).
.
“Middle age” simply does not describe who
I really am...
A vibrant and continually growing soul.
.
To listen or read the rest of my answers to his mind opening questions, click the link in my profile @thehotelartist.
🎉
So what does the term “midlife” mean to YOU?
.
Please share to expand our collective definition of this extraordinary experience, one in which I describe as the absolute best time of my life!
🎉

I KNOW that YOU are very brave,
and have done many brave things.
.
What is ONE of YOUR acts of bravery that first popped into your mind when I said that you were brave?
🚀
First one that popped into my head was when
I quit a job I loved in December 2017
to follow a passion I couldn’t live without.
.
I almost turned back several times,
thinking I was nuts to leave a job I’ve enjoyed for the past 20 years, .
However, when I discovered that my employer had hired my replacement months before my last day, I realized there was no turning back, and I finally relaxed into my decision to leave.
.
🚀
How about YOU?
What is ONE of your many brave acts that popped into your mind?
.
Please share to inspire us all to be brave,
even as we quiver with each step forward.
🚀
This collage painting is one of many that I created since I quit my blessed day gig just 4 months ago. 🚀

This day will never happen again.
What is ONE thing that made it unforgettable?
🦋
Now that I’m spending 4 hours EVERY day,
Monday-Friday, experimenting with new art
techniques, every day feels electric and extraordinary,
and today was no exception!
.
I loved playing with paint washes today.
What is that?
.
Glad you asked 😉!
.
It starts by placing a small dab of acrylic paint on paper,
and then adding water with a spray bottle to move the paint around. This picture is the unforgettable yumminess that showed up today!
🦋
So what is ONE thing that today unforgettable for YOU?
.
Please share to give us a glimpse into your
beautiful world!
🦋
