The artist discovered this unique walking path with a border of Osage Orange trees. She found out the hedgerow was planted many years ago by pioneers. This is a midsummer painting, full of vibrant greens and a cloudy cerulean blue sky. Suzanne remembers, “I wandered along the path toward a small house in the distance and decided it belonged in the piece.”
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.
