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.

Ocean Tara Ocean Tara…

Mahaloness is a portal to CARE. Here you are welcome to visit, all ages, all walks of life, here there is no discrimination, here there is no judgement, it is a place where I share my authenticity, my art, my poems, my words, and my care. Yes I sometimes get angry, yes I sometimes feel sad, yes sometimes I feel lonely, and yes I do feel despair. Some think I am crazy, some ask what drugs I am on, people will say what they want to say, opinions  and gossip propelled by an ignorance of the Darkness, so it goes, and the world continues to mourn. So be it this will not stop me from doing the work that needs to be done.

Minding mind

It is easy for an artist to hide behind a painting. It is not so easy revealing the ‘behind the scenes’.

Minding mind….

It appears we live in a society that loves to consume, and when it comes to art and music, there exists a love to borrow/appropriate things for our own purposes. Chances are most of us have done it, in one way or another. This is a slippery slope because on the one hand music and art should be free. And, on the other hand, an artist works hard, or at least the ones I know do, and deserve to be paid for their work, supported, like our troops, and like we do anyone else. Perhaps even more importantly, an artist deserves credit. I have found when I speak up about this kind of thing it simply gets shrugged off or I am seen as being ‘angry’. To be perfectly clear, I do experience moments of anger. Collectively we humans have plenty of stuff to be angry about. Every single one of us, and I am no different. Thankfully I have been lucky enough to witness some real magic in my life, the kind of magic that lights my way, especially when I experience darkness. Throughout I have maintained a steady practice of painting, reflecting a full spectrum of colours back at the viewer, similar to the light that has guided me. For nearly a decade I have exhibited and work both, private and public environments, with whomever, human, animal or insect. I once stayed up three days straight at a music festival, painting nearly the whole time. Why? Because I wanted to. I let myself be in the mercy of the festival goers. If they wanted a colour I would add that colour. If they wanted imagery I would do my best to add that imagery. If someone wanted to paint on it, I let them. They even went as far as to dress me up (see fotos). The final piece the Mona Lisa could not touch in its beauty. I painted in the sunshine, in the rain, and in the morning mist. I painted to psy trance, I painted through lunch while most others were being fed. People brought me food, gifted me snake skins, and even sang songs to me when I was drained. To say it was a soulful experience would not do it justice. What amazed me was how beautiful and helpful those who witnessed me work were. They provided care without being asked, they just did, selfless acts. It gave me faith in my fellow man, for I have my fair share of betrayals. I will say this….the joy I get from making and sharing my art, my heArt, far outweighs the struggle.

…and some words on anger

Years of being angry
Makes me sad when I am alone
For it was not anger that I meant to express
It was love that I wanted to show.

…on making skillful art…
I am a very disciplined painter, I work hard on my skills, so that I can make art that is beautiful, poignant and timeless.

If you are one to support the arts and you would like to see more of my original art and/or you would like to order prints, you can, please go to my Saatchi link. saatchi link

Fotomahaloness – no matter what, no one owns the art that comes out of me, not even me. The last few images are the painting I made at the festival and the outfit I was gifted to wear. Not usually my colour of choice I went with it. On the third day, wearing that outfit, and no sleep, I was taken to a remote spot on the forest to be one with it, and to my amazement was confronted (10 feet from where I sat) by a Grizzly Bear, which I would later document that experience in a painting called Buddhabear. link to Buddhabear

Humanity wills Mahaloness

We are here together, doing what we do, choosing to be radness, to be in flow, sustain, maintain and grow. When the stress of life tries to get you down, remember you are the composer, you create the song, you create the scenario, it’s just you. Now like music, the song you compose will attract what it attracts, and if you will a good song than good will shall come to you. Without being analytical, we can most likely agree that we are all good at, thinking that is, and when I say good, I mean we are good at making thoughts out of nothing that become something and that is the composition, and how it sounds is completely up to you. So with this I go for paint does call my name, and time being a precious thing it is time to make the most.

Doodles for future paint.
Morphopaintology meaning paintings that I remixed digitally, paintings are Wolfman and the Tara Moderna, a modern variation of the Tibetan Tara figure, more on this later on, I painted her recently on a 30×30 in gifted canvas, acrylic 2012 version
If you are going to use my images please contact me and ask me if you don’t mind, that’s cool.

When we forgot to be respectful to one another the goodness disappears, honour your brother and sister, even a simple thank you can go a long way, it is fellowship and respect for each other that will carry us through.
create evolution, one that instills kindness, caring and love.
