The challenge of this painting is to present a winter sun hidden behind an overcast sky. The artist shows the sun’s struggle to break through the clouds. This strange wintry sun casts an eerie light over a broken tree and snow-covered brush. The title comes from Native American culture -- February is the Hunger Moon.

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.
