restless spirit 

It has been a bit since I sat down a wrote some words so here goes….
I have been thinking about you

Not a moment goes by when I don’t miss you

Walking along a busy road

Cars passing 


human contact is what I long

Your contact

Sleepless nights
Restless spirit

Searching for peace and resolution

Practicing loving kindness

catching thoughts before they produce actions

that cannot be reversed 

What happen to the spark

Where did it go

Did I really lose sight

Of what makes life worth living

The happiness 

The hope


 I am looking for courage

Anything to let these thoughts go

As past pulls me back  

I walk forward 

I must find a way to go on.

The following images are a progression compilation of a hälts watercolour commission currently in the works. The themes are mythology, forest taking over city, cosmos and little prince to name a few. I will be posting a minimotion picture show soon to that will feature the different stages, changes, animations and timelapse of course. Might take me a bit hopefully not too long my friends, thank you for your patience. 



Who is I? 


Saatchi Mahaloness

This is a very nice link to an online gallery that fearlessly and graciously offers an outlet for my art. It is a convenient way to order prints or even purchase originals. I am slowly opening channels to my work and in doing so hope there are some folks out there that love what they see and feel, and would like to add that energy to a wall somewhere near them, as a high quality print, with options for canvas or poster format, it is my intention to share my work with you. Maybe even as a gift for a special loved one, a little bit of Mahaloness is guaranteed good energy. I welcome you to explore my work on Saatchi’s online gallery, I will be periodically posting new work to the site, to keep it fresh and current. I have plenty of imagery that I would like to continue sharing, and I will! I am beginning to explore the idea of upgrades to my WordPress site, stylize it up a bit, give it a bit of love, thank you wordpress for providing in the interim. I will be working away at it, bit by bit, mark by mark, it’s a challenge to find the extra time, I will, please remain patient. I am looking forward to continuing to share my work with you, and the journey. It is my goal to make my work accessible to as many people as I can, with the help of this blog, and other channels, and who knows maybe break down some of the stereotypes that are associated with being an artist, if I am lucky, though that may be a tall order. I have been blessed to witness the positive impacts my art and words make, it easily overshadows the hard times, please forgive me if sometimes I do go on on tangents, I am an Aquarius, though of the moderate variety, most times, or not. My passion for making art is alive and flourishing, and to be present in such extraordinary times, making art is something I do not take for granted, it is an honor. I will leave you with this, It is true that mistakes are a part of living, and certainly mistakes are part of the recipe for a life well lived. I dedicate my art to Earth, the planet that gives us home, life, water, food, shelter, and thankfully paint. Mahaloness Shane
Buddhabear based on a real life encounter I had with a Grizzly and a hummingbird in the wilderness of British Columbia, outside the grounds of a festival, in a tutu, one summers morning. I go to great lengths to make my art, I have lived a charmed life no doubt.
