The artist frequently visits River Park on the Fox. The Fox River Valley finds its way into many of her canvases. This day, she set an easel on high ground overlooking the river. A terraced park, native grasses and shrubs completed the view. It was a perfect place to paint.
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.
