Suzanne is intrigued with the changing of one season into another. This painting combines a late winter landscape with the glorious Forsythia that blooms before its leaves come out. The artist painted the yellow blossoms to be a stark contrast against the burgundies and oranges of leaves still clinging to trees. Suzanne says, “I can see this view right outside my studio windows. I’ve always wanted to capture it in a painting.”

Getting to Know Suzanne

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.
