A divided path in a forest preserve near artist Suzanne Massion's studio in rural Illinois. She captured the cool autumn day, punctuated with gold, ocher and warm yellows against the purple shadows along the pathway. The location is a favorite subject for Suzanne, and she often walks there for inspiration at different times of the year. "Baseball great Yogi Berra quipped, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it," says Suzanne. "The title is for you, coach Yogi!"
When the land changes, Suzanne Massion's paintings will remind you of the way it once was. She drives the back roads through the tall grass prairies and farmland of her native Illinois, stopping to paint en plein air when the moment strikes. She feels like she's in a race to save a disappearing treasure as buildings burn or open space is paved over. Suzanne donates a portion of her sales to fund local land conservation efforts.
