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.

‘The journey is long from over, the foolishness of it all has come at cost no doubt, nothing that can trump the feeling of the the wild horse running free. Unbridled, unabashed, fire in the belly, running from nothing, and going nowhere in particular.’   -exerpt from hälts writings

fotoMahaloness in essence…
This is a painting that I have been working quite diligently at. Ongoing since 2012, it began as a live painting performance and has since evolved into this stage. Soon I will release a stop-esque animation showing the progression! I am excited to see how that comes together, stay tuned. Thank you as well for the fellowship, and the views, Mahaloness is a real low key gem blog for the 21st century, a virtual art gallery for people to step out of the mundane and enjoy the unique fruits of my artistic labour. So thank you again.
Note: I am a one man art factory operation, so small it is not detectable on most radars. If you ever have questions, concerns or would like to own a piece of Mahaloness, please leave a comment or find me on FB, here is the link.

next to a lake…(Earthling rambles)

While sitting next to a lake…..

We do not control this. Those who think they can, will fail. Consider how old the planet is and than how old we are, it is not worth thinking about, it is bigger, longer, wiser than any human will ever comprehend. Some are in tune with it, some are out of tune, while some are filled with tunes of some kind, or knowledge of some kind, yet oblivious to her signs. We can tap into her, we can harness her energy, yet often times we fight against her, or we borrow fuel from her, as we have consume her, over and over and over again. So what have we returned? She is our collective Mother, yet we turn our backs on her, someone else’s problem I guess. Lets think and return to a mode of thought that does not rationalize our collective behaviour instead lets observe ourselves and find a way to be in tune with her rhythm, return dignity to her, and to ourselves. By respecting her and paying it forward to the youth who will be adults like you Mr(s). Politician, who aligns with big business and and tell us this is what’s best. Enough is enough was enough long ago, it’s time to present ideas of a change that will benefit us all, because the rhetoric of this is how it is, shut up and accept it, no longer applies.

If you like fotoMahaloness and you would like a print, it is possible and relatively hassle free. I also have artwork on Saatchi link here, it is a great way to support this artist’s pilgrimage, any help helps. I have gone ahead and priced my prints at really really reasonable prices, have a look, or, message me privately though Saatchi, I am a real person, artist, and human. Mahaloness
