This painting features a snowy landscape that offers sanctuary to many creatures, resting safely in burrows for a long winter’s sleep. The grasses and shrubs provide cover and a way to escape hungry predators. Suzanne says, “I often paint cold yet comforting winter scenes, fascinating subjects that are dear to my heart.”

This painting is framed in a medium brown 1 1/2" molding with Belgian Oyster linen spacers in a stacked presentation. The painting measures 18"H x 24"W and the framed size is 24"H x 30"W. The frame can be easily removed if desired.

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.
