SLO skull 

Let’s talk about peace. Well it seems there can be no peace without there also being noise, navigating through this conundrum with paint brush on hand has done wonders for my soul. I am by no means a conventional artist, and money and fame has never been the driving force, it’s nice when it comes but it is not reliable and certainly does not create the work. I go to a special place when I paint, there is layers of life to get through before I can find that flow and rhythm, once there it is a dream, smooth, calm, quiet, silence yet loud as spirit roars.

drawing has always been a passion of mine, especially in coffee shops amidst a fresh tasty hot cup of coffee

BC magica

Following a busy couple of months hälts the artist behind the art and fotos you see here on Mahaloness decided it was best to head west and spend time in his second home, where the elders live, Windermere BC, East Kootenay. I see the valley as a continuously morphing painting, each time I look, something new added to the composition, ceaseless magica, and a place where the mind eases.

What does my dragonfly friend see?

In my mind this was a double overhead Hawaiian, even if it is only a lake and that would be highly improbable.

diving deeper and deeper

I dive deeper and deeper, the murky water makes it difficult to see, I am reminded that fear is alive and well. I want to go back up, I want to get away as fast as possible. Thoughts are just thoughts I say to myself.

We all face difficulties along our path, this is somewhat of a universal, for no human is free from life’s lessons.

Nepal and moments in creative spacetime.

To my friends in the east
I send you my thoughts and prayers



thank you, and send prayers to Nepal

I am currently making this print available for sale in Canada, and also a couple other options, because I want to send some relief funds to those affected by the recent earthquake in Nepal, the money raised will be going to a friend in Nepal, he is a bit of a mentor to me, and a pillar to his community. Please proceed to my FB hälts art Page : https://www.facebook.com/shanemahaloness if this is something that resonates with you. Mahaloness, hälts

Woven tapestry

infinite

as far as eyes can see

beautiful upon first glance

look closely

there are holes.

Historical reminders of the human companion named, sorrow.

<;;ancient soul howls to lady moon

a fire crackles

illuminating dark times.

as young sorrow breeds passion

action

and when aligned with heart

does compassion be fully realized.

Memories drift in my mind, time after time, resonating misery that besieged me for so long. Ho’oponopono.

no. 3
Raised by wolves the animal instinct comes alive when the night sky is filled with moonlight. My animal companion with me, a guide perhaps, non existent to the other, until you cross that line.

no. 4

Lost in haze, without uniform, searching sky, rainbows like oil slicks fill my eyes, what were once mountains carved down by man’s hand, a valley in the making, smoke stacks make for great picture making, while at night bright lights flashing high in the sky, no plane sound, what is it? Have I finally lost my mind.

no. 4
Awoke from a very long sleep and realized there, in my arms, lay a goddess next to me. How long had she been there I wondered? Was she with me all this time?
