This is the 5th Obama painting in a series of five covering Obama’s presidency and what I like to call a paintamentary. I also referenced Picasso here with the white Dove, even though behind the lips a soldier takes aim. Also the tiles on the lower right corner are from one of the temples located in Damascus, Syria. This painting was completed around February 2013.

Here you see the first Obama I made just before his election juxtaposed with the fifth in this series. What a change!

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.
