The river is calm and serene on this early autumn afternoon. Mother Nature has supplied warm weather, warm colors, blue skies, and blue water. It’s October. As I stroll along, I marvel at how much green surrounds me. Two trees stand guard. Perfect! Time to paint. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and wired to hang.

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.
