Here are some fotos from hälts moms secret magic garden, it takes a lot of work, care and attention to maintain a garden, this has been a great lesson for hälts and inspires him to put that kind of carr and attention into his art practice.

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.

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.

the search

Searching for answers

for the heartache and pain
wondering what lessons have I not yet learned

inner wisdom 

helps to illuminate state 

and Ho’oponopono

to help me get back up with grace. 

I love you

I am sorry

Please forgive me

Thank you.

spirit paint

They are some who think paint has the power to dissovle the veil, and magically we can cross over to the other side. Unfortunately the ones who worked with this miraculous paint lived thousands of years ago, so I set out to make a ‘veil dissolver’ paint, although instead of mixing it with saliva like my ancient counterparts, I went with a modern version, acrylic polymer.

fotoMahaloness

 It all began with a log, which I later I burned and collected the ash and burnt chunks, ground those down, than I ground the quartz with a stone and added the mix to my polymer. I have yet to name the paint, unofficially I will call it spirit paint. A spark in my brain led to this development, perhaps this information was embedded deep within my consciousness, and simply by thinking about it I somehow chanelled ancient wisdom, and voila there it was, my first spirit paint. This is an ongoing social, cultural, anthropological, enthnographical, anthropological and psychological experiment.  Modern cave art….
