the path 

 Art is journey, it is all encompassing, always changing, one might even say transforming. In this lifetime there is only so much time, so small sacrifices are made in order to make healing, positive, meaningful art. What goes in is what will come out, and to be self aware is a vital part of the process. Tapping source and Nature exploration is necessary, while letting the subconscious be what it is, mindfully aware of how it  dances. Finding balance in a world with seemingly endless information is helpful, it is easy to be overwhelmed. There is an urgency to get things done because time seems fleeting and life demands, the essential practice is to breathe, ground and remain in a state of calm in the storm.  This is a daily practice that wavers and undulates, constantly learning and growing, this is the the path hälts is on.

In the dreamtime I see a world that is both new and ancient, in the dreamtime I am me as myself in a place where I want to be.

hälts live painting ‘the healer’ in its final stages 

The treasures discovered in the process of art making go beyond words on a page, and the edge of frame. Along The jounrey  doors opening to worlds I dreamed of as a child and now I see myself taking them to new levels as an adult. To describe the joy in the brushstroke cannot be measured, it just is, and like a wave on the ocean surface, it comes and goes in sets, waves fluctuating  between giants and tiny ripples, in flux, quick and slow, both whose grace amaze these eyes and soul, which goes into that brushstroke, big or small.

the dream 

INT.COFFEE SHOP. DAYTIME

A human is sitting in a coffee shop, there is 2 older ladies speaking softly in French and and the ambient sound of coffee roasting, and friendly chatter fill the air. The man takes a sip of a fresh cup of coffee, he reflects following a sojourn to the mountains, reminding him of his wild side, the animal within. The coffee shop melts to the ground revealing an expansive forest and mountains with a fresh dusting of snow, fall is in the air.

While hälts spends most of his time working on his art, he also has reconnected lately with his wild side, tapping into the Natural element, being one with it, breathing the fresh mountain air, walking where the bears walk, where the wolf pack hunts, and the moose roam. This is a place where he can give his inner human the best treatment that no salon, no spa could ever dream of. That’s not to say that these are not ways to relax and balance, it’s just that for the second half of his life he has been adapted to city life, each day his connection to Nature disrupted by airwaves, sirens and the bottom line. As the city edge wares off the inner human comes to the surface, smelling the air, feeling the earth beneath his feet, awareness wakes, these moments so few and far between. (from a recent hike with his foraging herbal healer friend Rebecca, thank you for the getting me out into the wild, hoooowwwwwwwlllllllll). A big thank you to Rebecca for your love and support.

the Wild West of Zen 

In the Wild West of Zen where the air is crisp and clean, the cowboys and cowgirls ride them horses and the cattle sing, their rhythms in sync with the seasons. Here hälts reminisces his childhood, days spent exploring the countryside, playing war in the woods, helping out with the farm, getting attacked by geese, wrestling roosters and feeding pigs. The sky never disappointed as clouds larger than life filled the sky and lightening bolts sparked a kids imagination, where did it come from ? These early years were the catalyst to a life of searching, exploring on a horse named curiosity, a spark rekindled in these moments of life.
