As I find myself in the current moment I contemplate the river I travelled on to get here. I am here, with all off myself, amazed, and in awe that I made it this far. Perhaps I am stubborn, yes, perhaps I am blind, yes, perhaps I went with my heart, yes, irrational mind. As I wander to the river’s edge, many thoughts drift into my head. I stare out at the water, searching for the silence. Heaviness comes over me. Not so distant memories flash through my head, some good, some sad, some I can’t even believe. Pride. I made it happen, all of it, even this river that flows by and the wind that sings it’s song, here I stand, connected to this land, the lesson continues, Mother Earth do I belong?
Painting is called Pride, I started it as a live art piece, and later would finish it in the studio. It is acrylic and good leaf on canvas. You can find it on my Saatchi online page if you want to order a print or are interested in the original for your collection.

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.
