Native Americans call the month of February the Hunger Moon. Outside my studio windows, the February sun is hidden behind an overcast sky. In struggling to break through the clouds, this strange wintry sun compels me to catch the effect on canvas. A broken tree lying in the snow-covered brush completes the Hunger Moon landscape.

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.
