Late night words…..with regards to modern tools and art today…

the tools may have changed over many thousands of years but the drive to make art is what it has has always been, exhilarating. It seems highly probable that artistic practice, whether that be cave painting, street art, studio painting, or sitting with subjects is a form of therapy for the human condition.

This is an animation I made recently using analog and digital methods. I did publish it in a recent post, I wasn’t sure if it was seen by too many as my blog was down briefly, so here we go again, this is a mixture of disciplines (drawing,painting,digital painting accompanied with soundtrack made and produced on a very well used iPad). It is a lifetime of curiosity that led to this moment, now shared with you, thank you.

Note to anyone interested: waves do not stay in one place, and similar to surfing, one has to paddle to the waves to get on a wave, and once on the wave make it count, Kelly Slater knows. While at anytime you can just as easily go over the falls, and hopefully as life progresses you learn how to fall so you can catch a few more beautiful rides…

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
