The Creator mural minimotion picture show with sound…

Thats right folks hälts has been at it agan, following a disastrous couple weeks of computer crashes and some plain old life stuff hälts has against all odds managed to persevere and create a wonderful little gem of a minimotion picture show featuring his latest mural called ‘Creator’. Over the course of the mural prodction hälts gathered document after document and created this timelapse/animated motion picture beauty that takes you on a journey, offering an inside look at hälts the artist in flow. The music was made by gathering samples via his trusty iPad and Garageband which is without a doubt the sound of hälts and a track called ‘the Galaxy’. Albeit hälts works on a real shoestring budget his hope is to further this concept and eventually make a high quality movie with all the bells and whistles, until than enjoy my friends and carry on. Anyone interesed in helping fulfill hälts dream please email him at mahaloness@gmail.com. First a word from Kurt.
   

when it comes to making minimotion pctures there is always the processing waiting period, a good time to meditate and patience really is a virtue…come on!

 
and now the hältsART feature presentation,’the Creator mural’ minimotion picture show with sound, enjoy!

Thank you. Mahalo. Gracias. Merci.

a poem and some pictures from a recent artshow

Lost in the sorrow of a

Reality 

shattered into a million pieces 

while wondering these city sidewalks

that sparkle under the purple rain.

 (a rainy day deep in contemplation poem)

‘deep in contemplation’

  

‘Purple Rain’ Prince tribute painting by hälts

  

hälts recently took part in an artshow with the talented Kim Parrent (monochromatic oil painting marvelousness) and Ian Groll Polaroid magica

  

the skull by hälts hanging out famously with some famous company , portraits by Kim Parrent

  

some wonderful reminders of a rather rich cinematic Past by Kim Parrent on Instagram as alligetisstatic

  

hälts art on the back wall and easel, Kim Parrent to the left, Ian Groll to the right.

  

while out walking I ran into this useful youthful reminder, ‘let the imagination run wild. ‘

many lessons

Life brings many lessons, some take time to learn, don’t be too hard on yourself, patience is your friend. It is easy to feel that everything must get done now….a sense of urgeny….this can also overwhelm, this too will pass, it will be okay, be easy on yourself, sending love to all of you out there who get these words, be well.

fotoMahaloness

 Remembering that the world is a very big place filled with people like you and me, this really does go a long way.   

    
    
    

Back to the studio workong on my skull painting, it just keeps transforming before my eyes, or is t me that is transforming , is it a dream, a vision, a life lesson, it is all ofmthese things and so much more, have a great day.

be like watercolour

Mindfullness does not attach to a thought, when in full sail one does not drop anchor.

fotoMahaloness

It has been sometime when I just painted for the sake of painting, no reason, no excuses, just plain and simple exercsing my right to expression and tapping into the unlimited fuel called imagination. 

I started a new watercolour, back to the basics, here a portrait of a beautiful french actress, I love french actresses, don’t know why, I just do.

  

    

bee friendly

  

my office today, it was a wonderfully pleasant day.

  

dandelions equals happy bees

  

when you open your eyes the world opens its eyes, sometimes in multiples like my hidden friend the sipder.

 

My heart and thoughts are with Japan at th moment may Earth settle peacefully and those families and people in crisis get the help they need. 

And lastly a new dress design featuring a detail from a hälts Buddha painting, Click here to order this dress from my online store, remember to use the ‘Mahaloness’ code

forest

Sometimes I go to the forest and just stand and listen to the trees. I can’t help but think and feel that something is watching me in return. Could it be an ‘over active imagination’ like I have been told countless times, or is it something watching me, a spirit, a force, an entity that is as much cognisant of me as I am of it, observing me as I observe it, and than I close my eyes and just breathe in the fresh air deeply, planting my feet in the soil and letting the forest take over my consciousness, my being, slowly dissolving the barrier that is up around me, letting the doubt go, letting Earth comsume me, becoming a part of the ecology, woven into the tapestry and than I open my eyes and I am back to myself standing in the forest.

And from the hältsART archive a painting called ‘Eastywesty’ & how to find Zen in the city, also subtle references to Hunter S. Thompson whose words made a lasting  impression on my psyche and his right hand man Ralph Steadman, whose drawings/paintings fired me right up. This painting is a available on as a simple single sided tshirt for anyone who might be interrsted in that kind of thing, please follow this  LINK! Click here and Mahaloness be with you.

So without further adieu my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary commemorative video by halts

fotoMahaloness

I have been in BC once again exploring the surroundings, getting inspired, doing some healing work, doing some garden work, hanging out with eagles, bear spotting, and working on the constitution (that is doing some restoration to the fundamental well being of this here author). I have seen my world turned upside down, and felt it was a good time to do some reflection and self work, and what better place to do that than BC, Canada, a place I have been blessed to spend half my existence in, and hopefully for many years to come.
