Born to paint

Born to paint
Curiosity my vehicle
Anything possible
Many marks made
No claim to fame
Putting ancient tongues into practice
Guided only by my faith
Left behind a painted road that tells my story
No more no less important to yours
Moments sacrificed for the sake of the document
This is a painters life.

All this for you.


Dedicated to Cluny Alberta Canada and my grandfather Julian Nobert.

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.
