Painters glow

a painters glow

I love painting as much as I love Bowness. You will only understand the later half if you are from Calgary, and you either live or spend time in Bowness. This image is from many many moons ago, and in typical fashion I am seen painting on the floor, usually until I lost the feeling in my legs. I remember this sesshin well, I was working on my line control with a 1 inch liner brush that I had an absolute obsession with. Many of my paintings during this period, the mask period, were similar to my Moleskine doodles, and at the time masks were a favourite motif for me. I have come a long way since those days, as is the case with the Obama series entitled ‘Are you a Believer?’, with my most recent Obamafive which you may have seen in my last couple blogs.

I would also like to take a moment and simply say, Thank you for being here, I will be resuming regular blogs, realigning with what Mahaloness, a new passion for living in what I can only describe as magical times. May we carry on together and be well be well be well.

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.
