Fresh breath

fotoMahaloness -fresh breath while on omtrip
om (aum) trip – trip to wilderness as a way to refuel for creative process and just be; when the city is breathing down my neck, breath gets restricted, quick, and full of city odour. Remedy: go on an omtrip, a trip to wilderness or as wilderness as you can get to. A place where there are more trees than cars, and where one can sense oneself being with nature. In Canada there are still some places that are easily accessible, which are wonderful places to breathe in life, amongst the trees, the birds, the flora and fauna, while observing and being in tune with nature. Whether it is being in the mountains, in the forest, or next to a lake, it is all invigorating for mind, body, and spirit. Recent omtrip to Lake Minnewanka 2013

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.
