Reeds and watery plants obstruct my view as I search for solid footing along the shore of a small lake. I can see a great distance. This is a land of shallow ponds broken only by a few trees and shrubs. The view insists I stop to paint.

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.
