An abandoned pasture and treelined ridge are important features here. While walking on the edge of a residential neighborhood, Suzanne discovered this hidden space. No dairy cows have grazed here in years. The land is alive with purple thistles and Black-eyed Susans. The artist painted the meadow as a tall grass prairie in midsummer bloom. The scene is complete with blue sky and white clouds rolling by.
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.
