Flashhback to a time when I found myself in between, a transition period, what better place to find oneself than on an island in the middle of the Pacific. Below is some of the creative explorations I found myself on, the force was strong on Maui it was impossible not to want to respond, looking back I am pretty happy I did what I had to do.

The visitation of a praying mantis is quite auspicious and taken as a sign of being on track and also to take it slow, not too fast, be like mantis.

Remember love and compassion make beautiful waves.

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.
