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 .

far and close

There is moment after moment of happiness available to us, sometimes you have to travel far and wide, while sometimes you just have to stick your face in a flower.

moments of in and out of creative space. Flowers are from Agent R’s garden and the hibiscus is an archive from a Maui sojourn. The sand art was made at the cove on Maui c.2012 and the wave is Ho’okipa, one of my favorite places on Mother Earth. Psychedelic sky courtesy of modern technology and some dang fine puffy white clouds floating in the sky one day.

Dragon Tree Moon Flower

The Dragon Fruit tree, producer of the moon flower. It only buds for one night, and than wilts come morning. The moth that used to pollinate this beauty is extinct. My hope with this trip, is to write and share not only my art experience, but to also share my observations and encounters, as Hawaii is a climatic hot zone, and really is a good climate indicator for how the whole planet is doing. This includes the whales, dolphins, sea turtles, monk seals, humuhumunukunukupuakua’a, hammerheads, Lilikoi, pueo, praying mantis, and all the species that are here, either regularly or intermittently. An interesting note is that. Most of the flora and fauna was introduced to these islands, it shows that human touch, no matter how small, does make a difference, for better and for worse. It can be said that this place is a rare gem. My hope…that this is something we preserve to the best of our collective abilities. Stewardship. Love Mahaloness
