The wolf sits in the forest, silent, watching humans chase each other around in boats. ‘What is this strange dance?’, wonders the wolf. Eagle soars overhead as clouds ripple and swirl forming symbols one into another, after another. The sun rises, new beams reaching her soft skin, Earth mother changing as seasons change, we are all changing, everyone, everything, here and elsewhere.
….and now a link to a little video I was in for a travel spot, no stunt doubles. Mahaloness to Grand Rapids Wilderness and all the the good folks involved. Alberta equals animal wildlife, plants, sky, rivers, mountains, badlands, prairie, foothills, lakes, walks, hikes climbs, lets take care of it for future generations to enjoy. Organ kicks in.

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.
