Is it a marsh or a prairie? I see grasses already turned green. Islands of shrubs and trees dot the land far into the distance. The water is not visible, but a step forward and one better have the Wellingtons on. I stand and paint on solid ground at the edge of this world. It is very early spring and a symphony of Chorus Frogs fills the air.

This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished, wired, and ready to hang.

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.
