    Ask Herbal health Expert Susun Weed & Nature Painting with JF Peters

    in Self Help

    Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with JF Peters. "I believe I paint to help preserve the beauty of nature. My creative process would not be possible without this clear, meaningful purpose. I guess you might say, this is my spiritual trip, to which I am totally commited.  The images of my paintings begin in my mind. They appear as a blend of memory (beautiful places I've experienced) and imagination. After a few years, the image calls me to the point that I begin to slowly and methodically, bring the painting out onto the canvas. When the calling ceases, the painting is born. Nature is my guide and the vehicle for my creation."
