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.

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
