How many layers go into a painting?
Well thats really difficult to say, lots!

fotoMahaloness -from this to this. Follow the link to see what lies beneath the layers of the painting below, titled simply as ‘Mahaloness’, although originally it was called ‘Phantasm’. I have been working on this one for 2 years, if time is your thing. What began as a live art painting has now morphed into what you see below. Since it’s inception it has been in 3 live art performances, it has been hung in art 3 shows, it has been through a flood, just to name a few. Is it done? When is a painting done? Well thats also difficult to say, it really depends on how far you want to go with it, if it feels right, than go with it, never hesitate.

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.
