I love to make art in open air studios, it is a completely different way to paint. I am always searching for new and interesting places to explore my creativity. It is a great way to connect with my surroundings, each environment has it’s own set of challenges and magic. It is a painter’s pilgrimage that I am on, driven by curiosity and wonder, I will one day compile all if this into one nice book, I better get started there is a lot of material to go through!

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this growing story, it is an honor to share the journey and none of this would be possible without every single one of you:) Mahaloness

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.
