Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.

  12. I feel that this speaks volumes about solitude and the isolation we feel in moments of natural splendour & man made beauty. Or possibly it’s just a load of really cool photos. You decide? 🙂

    • We make the most of where we’re at, the moments here happen everyday, everywhere, every which way, though perhaps not always apparent if we are in some kind of numbed state or caught up in our daily blah blah, these moments were gifts and I was happy to document them and share them here.

  13. Speechless! *’coz I could still find a word to compliment* 😉

  14. Photos like these are the best — not that much physically, but can get through your heart. At least for me and for all the others here, I believe.

  15. Better than words and the silence of being will always be louder than words. Thankyou

  17. A picture’s worth a thousand words. I think the piano photo is my favorite.
