in the current 

The sun is shining and hälts finds himself in the current of artistic process. The harvest time has been fruitful as hälts has been painting live at Calgary New Age Books and Crystals. It has been a real pleasure to share the creative process with friends and strangers alike providing hälts with new perspectives, as viewers share their thoughts and provide new insights into the subject of art, and this wonderful life. The joy of painting is as much about the journey as it is the destination, inspiration is a two way street, this is Mahaloness way.

In this lifetime hälts has made many marks, and in this lifetime he will make many more, he make them count, make them resonate, make them sing, make them gentle, make them vibrant, make them communicate the heart, mind and spirit and what it is to be human, freedom .

live art brah minimotion

‘live art brah’ 🐇hälts minimotion with sound brah featuring live art sesshins at Calgary New Age Books and Crystals accompanied with sound called ‘la la la’🐇enjoy⚡️⚡️

first a quick word though on being human:

‘our past has influence on us in the present, however being labelled a negative person by others because of this, or beating ourselves up for it is like driving around in circles, whatever you see in me that you don’t like is in you, whatever I don’t like in you is in me, realize this and we can once again be present and truly move forward, this will take some practice, this I am willing to do’

🐇 and now a hälts feature presentation minimotion🐇

This minimotion features hälts watercolour ‘morning haiku’, ‘the healer’ ink drawing seen through a crystal lens, the road less traveled, a salmon run shot in the magical land of B.C., a foto montage from recent live art sesshins, and the weather, never a dull moment, made to inspire.

live art brah

One day hälts walked into a store, his friends store called New Age Books and Crystals, he looked at a wall and it was as if the wall said ‘hälts put a mural up here’, and the rest was history. Fast forward several months and hälts thought to himself, ‘it’s time to get of the studio and do some public live art’. And wouldn’t you know it he found himself in the same shop he put his mural ‘creator’, so he set up his art studio and the rest is history in the works. The moral, if there is one, and to be blunt hälts is not so much an expert on morals, they are hard to define after all, the key here in all of this is simply when it calls, ‘do it’, and by ‘it’ I mean source. Tap the source and don’t look back.

Direction is key to moving forward. 

halts setting course

the underlayer, setting the tone for the painting ahead

following a lovely day of painting hålts is smiling and the painting, yet to be titl, takes form

there really is so many ways to see it

this is an old technique, draw the image you want to paint on paper, cut it out, and this becomes the guide to the portrait ahead

the new face is outlined and begins to take shape

many rivers lead to the same ocean

hålts invited a friend to come and make a mark, and she did, gracias Nancy!

so many ways to see it
