Appreciating Buddhist philosophy, she explains that “creating art” is a virtue of wholesomeness, an exploration of truth, and contributes to a meaningful life that benefits all.
NEW! At Bon Secours: Judith Weiss’ fall themed expressionistic paintings. Judith says of her work “Growing up in a family florist and landscaping business that still thrives today. It is through the natural environment of earth, rock and water, and the plant world that I express the ineffable. I begin my work from landscapes I have seen and photographed, then put them aside and move into recall and personal feeling. In this way I communicate my inner landscape.”
