My favourite time of winter is when the smell of spring is in the air.

This is a handpainted wearable garment made with brush and acrylic paint. I tend to not make a lot of them as they demand a lot of time and patience, thats what makes them so special. I have painted various garments, jackets, hats, etc. over the years for various people, from kids to celebrities, each one gets the same treatment, that is a part of being in Mahaloness after all. I get great satisfaction seeing clients happiness levels go straight up upon delivery, this reciprocates the time and effort that goes into each and every one I do. Energy given energy received and so on. They will last forever if taken care of, completely washable, and suitable for people who like this kind of thing.

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.
