slacker 

I have been slacking a bit on these posts on Mahaloness, although I would say it is more a matter of delegating time, which is fleeting so I do what I can and that will have to do. Lately Spring arrived and said ‘hälts, go south’ so I began dreaming up some ideas and am working to make that a reality. While these people that run the world do their thing, hälts is going to get to work which consists of keeping the paint flowing, tapping the imagination, and ensuring the spirit is alive! For now here is a cross section of hälts art from the last little while.

Artist tip: Surround yourself with people who get you

hälts watercolour WIPs ”Phoenix rising’ ‘therianthropica’ ‘pineapple express’ leaning against ‘the healer’ brah

hälts travel foto form southern Mexico brah, searching for empty lineups and nice glides with the foamies, soon to reunite

hälts recycled cardboard WIP, in hälts studio there are no walls 🌊 foto: endless beaches, empty waves, makes an artist/surfer happy brah (southern Mexico)


hälts hybrid concept art for abandoned building in southern Mexico, dreaming up ideas is perhaps the most important step in hälts process

hälts drawing, a staple like an Avacado in the morning, just a good idea to put stuff on paper brah

hälts mural ‘creator’ made with pure Aloha and Mahaloness this is my true passion, making art for the people, my fellow human beings brah


and lastly hälts dabbles in the film industry as a grip, it is through diversity that one acquires skills that go right back into the art, the cycle continues

Mystical Experience

From these eyes do I see a world filled with wonder, beauty and the mystical. From these fingers flows experience and dreams held sacred in hands offered to those who share the path.

I am a fragment of my ancestors 
who saw the veil for what it is
who explored full spectrum consciouness 
without a book or wikipedia.

tapping into whirlwind power

mawyucan 
‘whirlwind place’- becuase a shaman’s ability to fly was sometimes called ‘whirlwind power’.  

-from David Lewis-Williams, ‘The Mind in the Cave’ p.170 (a must read if you are an artist, or you have a curiosity of human consciousness and its possible origin)

Tapping into Whirlwind power often informs my heart work.

Unless we acknowledge the suppression of our darkside we will fail to realize transformation.

Mahaloness started out as a way for me to share my art and explorations with those of you sharing space on this wondrous planet. I can honestly say the journey has been a good one, with a little bit of everything along the way. In the last couple of months I have been sharing moments from a trip to Mexico, ‘a Southern journey’, as I have called it. The purpose of my trip was to meet with friends, go surfing, and absorb as much of Mexico as humanly possible. This demanded my full attention and awareness and an complete openness to adventure. The trip opened my mind to a world I could not have imagined, and I like to think my imagination is not so bad, so perhaps ‘mind blown’ would better sum up the experience. The energy there is strong, it is omnipresent, deep, in fact the farther south I journeyed the more steeped I became. Since my return I have been letting it permeate through my consciousness, and when time permits posting new segments of that experience with you. So without further adieu I just want to say thank you, super gracias, and I look forward to more posts here on Mahaloness, for now here is a special foto segment from ‘a Southern journey’.
