Slow moving streams with shallow bottoms produce a mirror like effect that Suzanne has featured in other oil paintings. The surrounding woodland is reflected in the quiet water of this typical Midwest scene. Suzanne says, “I have walked on the shore here many times and finally captured just the right look in this painting.”

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.
