This painting is part of a series by the artist that shows the effect of the sun on snow, lakes, streams, wetlands, and prairies. The sun is an obvious shape in the artwork. It alters the surrounding land. Here the sun casts light across a watery world. Suzanne painted a foreground that gradually recedes into the distance where the sun hangs prominently in the sky.

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.
