The journey continues, hälts has been spending a healthy amount of time in the forest realm, visiting lakes and rivers, and looking up to the sky. These experiences bring hälts much joy and the connection to the land, sky and water energizes, bringing a sense of alertness and awareness, which can get comfortable when in the city for long periods of time. In the city realm hälts been working diligently on a live painting project called ‘the healer’ at Calgary New Age Books and Crystals. Each brush stroke is in tune with his natural experiences and mirrors the last part of the painting pilgimage. As ‘the healer’ reaches the completion of its cycle, hälts is drawn into contemplation, remembering all the beautiful people he met along the way, new and old, young and ancient, a blessed experience. At the moment(s) hälts is hosting a print sale at Calgary New Age store, the display features a vast array of artworks, both originals and hybrid art, combining painting and the digital realms.

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.
