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….

sky shark 

It’s been a active month and a bit for hälts, similar to the ocean with endless corduroy lines, there is a plethora of waves to ride. Ideas have been coming to hälts, sharks swimming in the sky, all seeing eyes watching whales gliding through the cosmos, in an effort to bring some awareness to our ocean friends who we share space with on this blue and green planet called Earth. There is a grea documentary called Sonic Sea, it details a few human related impacts on marine wildlife and offers solutions to this growing problem, and considering we get one planet to live on, it is our responsibility to take care of it as best we can.

In his search for meaning hälts has come to realize it is his mission to be a voice for the planet and all its beings, the following images are a reflection of this.

a quick little flashback

I wish I had all the answers and than I would wish I never knew them at all.

fotoMahaloness

Flashhback to a time when I found myself in between, a transition period, what better place to find oneself than on an island in the middle of the Pacific. Below is some of the creative explorations I found myself on, the force was strong on Maui it was impossible not to want to respond, looking back I am pretty happy I did what I had to do.

hälts had quite the audience, Hula girl and Hula guy checking out the built in protective diety mural by hälts

  

The visitation of a praying mantis is quite auspicious and taken as a sign of being on track and also to take it slow, not too fast, be like mantis.

  

Lilikoi softening the edges and a reminder that Nature is the ultimate artist.

 

Remember love and compassion make beautiful waves.

quest

I acknowledge the ancient ancestors
whose light lit my mortal torch
who made the path I walk
my marks are also their marks
my vision a continuation of their vision
and so I journey on
this torch illuminates the way
thank you dear ancestors
for you helped to make this life
and for this I will carry forward
long into the night.
