Been on the road a lot lately, camping, forest foraging, hiking, climbing apple trees, bear tracking, observing Eagles while being observed right back, and absorbing the summer vibes. The road has been good to hälts, opening the mind to new possibilities and if there’s one thing this artist has come to realize is spending time in the mountains, in Nature, does wonders for the body, mind, and spirit. It is also this artists intention to get back to some writing, sharing art, sharing minimotions, story telling and life experience with you here on Mahaloness, so please stay tuned.

be like watercolour

Mindfullness does not attach to a thought, when in full sail one does not drop anchor.

It has been sometime when I just painted for the sake of painting, no reason, no excuses, just plain and simple exercsing my right to expression and tapping into the unlimited fuel called imagination. 

I started a new watercolour, back to the basics, here a portrait of a beautiful french actress, I love french actresses, don’t know why, I just do.

  

    

bee friendly

  

my office today, it was a wonderfully pleasant day.

  

dandelions equals happy bees

  

when you open your eyes the world opens its eyes, sometimes in multiples like my hidden friend the sipder.

 

My heart and thoughts are with Japan at th moment may Earth settle peacefully and those families and people in crisis get the help they need. 

And lastly a new dress design featuring a detail from a hälts Buddha painting, Click here to order this dress from my online store, remember to use the ‘Mahaloness’ code

forest

Sometimes I go to the forest and just stand and listen to the trees. I can’t help but think and feel that something is watching me in return. Could it be an ‘over active imagination’ like I have been told countless times, or is it something watching me, a spirit, a force, an entity that is as much cognisant of me as I am of it, observing me as I observe it, and than I close my eyes and just breathe in the fresh air deeply, planting my feet in the soil and letting the forest take over my consciousness, my being, slowly dissolving the barrier that is up around me, letting the doubt go, letting Earth comsume me, becoming a part of the ecology, woven into the tapestry and than I open my eyes and I am back to myself standing in the forest.

And from the hältsART archive a painting called ‘Eastywesty’ & how to find Zen in the city, also subtle references to Hunter S. Thompson whose words made a lasting  impression on my psyche and his right hand man Ralph Steadman, whose drawings/paintings fired me right up. This painting is a available on as a simple single sided tshirt for anyone who might be interrsted in that kind of thing, please follow this  LINK! Click here and Mahaloness be with you.
