Even though I live on a dried up sea bed on the edge of a mountain range I am a water person. I love surfing, windsurfing, kiting, and anything that involves water, waves, or wind. When I am not able to be on the water I tend to paint things that bring me back to that feeling.

Recently photographer Morgan Maassen website link gave me permission to jam out with one of his fotos of Kelly Slater, so I went to town and made a couple watercolour acrylic hybrids and also added it to my old surfboard which my pals and I used to train on lakes with behind a jetski, you got to do what you got to do sometimes. Thank you Morgan, very Mahaloness.





Thank you, see you on the water sometime.

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.
