I mostly work behind the camera, although lately there has been a bit of a momentum shift and I am freeing up a few rules I have held in place for quite some time now. I am the publisher of this blog and also am responsible for the images you see, either I painted them or drew them, or it is a travel document foto and so on. I enjoy sharing my treasure trove although I do admit I have slowed my tempo in the blogging world, but certainly not so for the artiverse (similar to a paintaverse) I have found myself in at the moment. In coming weeks I will be releasing a couple new art videos I have been working on in collaboration with SkyFarm Collective, one a documentary of the raw variety and the other a pure hoot, if you know what I mean. I am very excited about this and look forward to sharing that with you. I think it will put things into a little more perspective, if my blog has not done that already.

Note: I have made plenty of mistakes. I am human, and as a human I am prone to both the good and bad, and all of it I am constantly learning to love, which can be a tough go at times due to a rather feisty renegade spirit. I would be lying if I said I didn’t have moments of raw intensity, and I am aware I will likely see many more ups and downs, peaks and troughs. I can only hope that the bumps smooth out as I gain the wisdom. The one thing we can never rule out is ‘love’ and it is something well worth fostering.

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.
