flower power 

Somedays you just need to stop and smell the flowers, and this is exactly what hälts did.

Here are some fotos from hälts moms secret magic garden, it takes a lot of work, care and attention to maintain a garden, this has been a great lesson for hälts and inspires him to put that kind of carr and attention into his art practice.

hälts stone path completed last summer look as if it’s been there forever

nothing like a good magic garden watercolur sesshin, seen here is hälts WIP ‘painted turtle’s dream’

life is full of everything imaginable and unimaginable, taking the time to sit and let the human spirit express is a key to a healthy life

a flower child in dark times 

I was talking to a friend today about some artist woes, the attempt to sustain art in a world that demands you to play by its rules, he simply said to me,

‘Dude I hear you. You are an artist making his way in a world that batters you. This is a storm now bro. Its gonna take time. You are confronted with a meaningless reality. Society tries to pound meaning into it for us. But resist bro! Make your own meaning. Im here as buddy.’

To this hälts replies Mahaloness, and a deep soulful thank you, carry on!

The following is a collection of hälts hybrid art, minimotion and soundscapes all made by hälts or at least composed by hälts because let’s face it we all influence each other, inspire each other and push each other, this is what makes life great rather than headlines news telling us it isn’t.

Life has been moving quickly, creative flow is at peak velocity. As I near my next art exhibition I begin to finalize paintings and get everything organized and ready. What keeps me sane in times like these is a backyard garden, deep breaths, a really supportive partner, family and friends. To all those people thank you for being present in my life. To all you out there in the world I would love to invite every single one of you to my show, although I understand that’s a tall request so I will also post updates here on Mahaloness.

Life is always moving, not just in the city. I find peace when I am in my work or when I venture into the backyard to enjoy the garden with a bit of sunshine, it never hurts.

gardens bring peace.

I have been quite active lately, a mix of making new work for an up and coming art experience/show, and thanks to Agent R, I have a garden in my life for the first time since I was a child (not that I have ever grown out of that, perhaps another post for another time). Of course I put my personal touch on the garden and made sure the bees knew it was safe to enter.

and my city of residence as a couple weeks ago, spring has sprung, and with it a time of renewal and rebirth.

on a hill I look out to my city beloved
juicy clouds roll by
life is just marvellous in the spring
