The harvest is done. All that's left is stubble at the field's edge, the 'headlands.' It's where the tractor makes a turn at the end of a row. This border area is planted last as the farmer leaves the field. The stately oaks are undisturbed in small islands. Lucky for me, the headlands swirl in circles. I think the farmer had a painting in mind.

This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished, wired, and ready 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.
