hälts in mural

 This is a new minimotion by hälts featuring footage from his last mural project  ‘creator’ along with some fun animations paired nicely with a hälts original soundtrack, powered by Mahaloness. The hummingbird footage is from a recent trip to BC where hälts also discovered a new talent he never knew he had, path making, which he has shared a little bit in recent posts and will most likely follow up on in future posts. Until the next my friends be well and enjoy this hälts special presentation. Thank you

touch earth

To make a path

one has to be the path

touch the earth

be earth

touch the dirt

be dirt

touch the stone 

be stone.

drala in BC

 Although the sun is always in the sky, what is it that causes you to look up and see that it is there? Although magic is always available, what allows you to discover it? The basic definition of drala is “energy beyond aggression.” The only way to contact that energy is to experience a gentle state of being in yourself. -‘Shambhala. The Sacred Path of the Warrior’ by Chögyam Trungpa

For the past little while hälts has been soaking up some BC magica, taking in as much as is humanly possbile while giving back to his elders, building a safe and sturdy path so they may move easily and confortably. The artistic flow enters new territory, gaining a new appreciation of the work of stone masons. Similar to painting, the act of mark making takes on 3-D form, brick to brick, stone to stone,  one step closer to final composition. There is a sense of fulfillment and happiness in this work, it will be interesting to see how this influences hälts artistic practice as he continues along the artists path.

The artist path, literally.

Working in the yard making a path and one cannot but help be entralled by the sacred geometry.

  

Breaks by the lake put life to persecptive as BC soaks into my soul, or isnit th either way around, gratitude all around.

  

As the moon crosses sky so too does deer cross the Earth, as above so below.

  

The ‘wolfman’ painting by hälts including feathers, birch bark and acrylic paint. This painting portrays the effects of spending quality time in BC.

  

‘dancer on the lake’ a hybrid art by hälts, the first version of this series was projected in Louvre in Paris last summer, this a reminder that a small gesture can really go a long long way.

  

flower child at heart.

soul medicine

life offers joy

life brings pain

life brings surprises

and sometimes disdain

no matter what may come

there will be hälts 

making art.

A bit of a painful moment in hälts life journey, these moments build character and are essential to feel, whether you be man, woman, or child, give yourself the freedom to let go and feel whatever it is you feel, than write it down, express it through art, or cooking, or dancing, or singing, maybe a little less drinking, whatever it is you do, channel it, this is good medicine.

  

No matter how alone you may feel, there will always come a visitor to remind you that this may not be true. (Praying Mantis friend visitation during a maui mana painting sesshin)

  

When the crow speaks you listen, spending time with Nature, observing Nature is good medicine.

  

Art is a facilatator of joy.

back to ink

hälts is in BC, back to the basics, back to the drawing book, with pen in hand, BC Nature takes over senses and sanity returns, peace of mind, dreams and a new found freedom.

this is a good time to get back to the basics of love

  

In the dream hälts was being observed closely by jaguar.


…and a flashback to a recent event, and a rare capture of hälts in action.

  

hälts body paint is a transformational experience, from a recent gathering here with Robyn as she morphs into cosmos captured eloquently by Mark Adam.

Thank you my friends, more BC stuff coming as hälts prepares to go 3-D with some bricks and a little bit of elbow grease.

BC magica

Following a busy couple of months hälts the artist behind the art and fotos you see here on Mahaloness decided it was best to head west and spend time in his second home, where the elders live, Windermere BC, East Kootenay. I see the valley as a continuously morphing painting, each time I look, something new added to the composition, ceaseless magica, and a place where the mind eases.

In my mind this was a double overhead Hawaiian, even if it is only a lake and that would be highly improbable.
