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.

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.

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.
