This image of a river could be anywhere in the Midwest. It's a shallow bottom, slow moving stream with lush vegetation on all sides. I've walked here and couldn't resist putting the image to canvas. A final conservation varnish has been applied. The painting is varnished and in an 11” x 14” archival matt and backing, allowing for easy framing. It is sleeved in plastic to protect the matting until framed.

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.
