Studio visit (quick time out)

I have been spending vast amounts of time in the studio. Cosmic comes to mind. There have been solo sesshins, and collaborative efforts including recently with Agent R, fantastic every which way, the paintamentary continues! Creativity is even more enjoyable when there is quality company. Everyday I walk to my studio, I have a show coming up and I want to be as prepared as is possible, that is a wise modus operandi because I know from experience that the work put on does pay off. Everyday I get to walk over my favorite river, the Bow. It is a catch 22, I am sandwiched by a river and a busy road. I might have to start wearing an oxygen mask, the car emissions are outstanding this time of year, bravo cars, thank you very much. Without getting bent out of shape too much, as I do ride in cars and I myself have driven them, I do not want to complain, it is something to ponder though. In my opinion I prefer the smell of gas at the pump than I do the burnt emission that cars produce and I can tell you one more thing, I high five as many of those trees next to the road as they are on the frontline cleaning the air with each inspiration. So good job trees.
Fotomahaloness -recent offspring, paintings are like children they require care and attention, even when you may not be feeling it! Art is work, even with all the talent in the world it requires a lot of intensity, for me, and that requires energy, a good internal fire, working and stoking the fire are two secrets revealed, there is always magic, you have to be working in flow to experience it. Last foto a Great Horned owl that Agent R and myself saw the other day, it saw us first no doubt.
Now back to work!

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
