Inspiration and flow cont.

I have been painting for what feels like a lifetime, and when I am painting, or even writing these blogs, I am tapping into the source. The source being the inspiration that I have encountered along the way, each day or night, and in between. I have been fortunate to meet some great folks, who share their stories, and I have been known to translate some of these into painted visions. Perhaps at heart I am a folk artist, or perhaps a spirit painter, I like to think I am a story teller, and a documentarian of wisdom, the kind of wisdom that underlies knowledge, the current and flow of information that we as humans cannot afford to lose. Although there is a spiritual aspect to my work, I also think spiritual experience has its variance amongst the many, and that is why it is a good idea for me to be open while being discerning at the same time. Sometimes it’s just a feel thing, I commit to my gut and heart, this is more or less the ambiguous aspect of my story, and leaves for a lot of uncertainty and reliance on patience and trust, though I am very much a student in this matter, and am constantly working at it. I also have experienced what I call flash visions. Following a flash vision I like to research some of the components of the vision, that is if it is something of this world, and than make notes, doodle and than translate that into a painting. It might seem a little ambiguous, and I know from experience that even the most mundane of activities, or encounters can foster a creative burst, this is the zen way, in that no matter how big or small the encounter, no matter how crazy or calm, the input is always available, and when I tap into a good one, the law of attraction, based on my observations and experience, does seem to correlate with good output and flow. Perhaps this close to being effortless, though in my experience work has always been a rather crucial component, the good work that is.

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
