With my palette box and canvas in tow, I climb a gently rising hill toward a treelined ridge. Is this an abandoned pasture or tall grass prairie? Cows haven't grazed here in quite a while. Purple thistles and Black-eyed Susans have sprung up everywhere. I decide to stop and paint while the sky is blue and white clouds are rolling by.

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.
