when the road bends why go straight. -Gypsy proverb

The highway turns and bends winding it’s way down the coastline like a snake. As I peer out my window the world is a green blur with intermittent colourful streaks and that fine line when abstract turns to form. The mind transforms to this new reality shedding layers of past dust in the guises of guilt and doubt. Drifting in and out I find myself in a field between two worlds, as wheels turn full circle counting off the lives sacrificed to make these roads which this restless soul now travels.

As this beast carries me along littered plastic bottles, Coca Cola signs and graffiti style painted mural billboards provide evidence of human populous. Occasionally we stop in some small town to drop off and pick up, not quite long enough to stop and eat, always pack food when on a bus. I sense I am making good time, so far the trip has been seamless…mental note, ‘when in Mexico do not get ahead of yourself!’

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.
