drawing 

The foundation of hälts art repertoire is drawing, it is something he has practiced for many years, with only a few hiatuses in his earlier years. Drawing transforms an idea into the blueprint, the base for which hälts builds his compositions. This is  a great way for artists to develop their style, and tap into the creative process anywhere, anytime. While travelling hälts also draws, this is a way to connect to the place and also it seems to provide an outlet for the stress that comes with travelling alone to new places. In some cases these drawings become the base for a mural design and paintings, and for hälts they are interwoven.

Various drawings from over the last little while, each one little victories, although photography is something hälts loves, there is something to be said for sitting in an environment and drawing, it opens you right up to a world that is unknown, these are some of those worlds….

full circle

seeking the temple

eternal

walking the path

amidst the illusion

reaching oneness

disrupted 

thousandfold

the search continues

forsaken 

nothing

gone like wind

only to return

full circle.

soul medicine

life offers joy

life brings pain

life brings surprises

and sometimes disdain

no matter what may come

there will be hälts 

making art.

A bit of a painful moment in hälts life journey, these moments build character and are essential to feel, whether you be man, woman, or child, give yourself the freedom to let go and feel whatever it is you feel, than write it down, express it through art, or cooking, or dancing, or singing, maybe a little less drinking, whatever it is you do, channel it, this is good medicine.

  

No matter how alone you may feel, there will always come a visitor to remind you that this may not be true. (Praying Mantis friend visitation during a maui mana painting sesshin)

  

When the crow speaks you listen, spending time with Nature, observing Nature is good medicine.

  

Art is a facilatator of joy.

Aloha A’ina Sesshins

In 2012 I travelled to Maui to do some soul searching and connect with the land and sea. I spent much of the time sitting and drawing, channelling the energy of the island and letting my pen translate the feeling I that flowed though my being. Each place I visited grounded me by letting the environment introduce me to the A’ina, which is a Hawaiian word for ‘Earth, land’. Aloha A’ina means love for the land, love of the land. I have always felt that I am a child of the land and have exepreinced this feeling in many places around this precious Earth. The land, sea and air offer lessons to us that can be benefitial to our well being and bring persepctive to the challanges we face in this lifetime. When we shift our thoughts and let Nature mind in we open doors to healing, both for oursleves and the land we are part of.
