Close to the artist’s home studio stands this old dairy barn. The milk house and windmill are derelict. A remnant of fencing borders a pasture now overgrown in dry grasses. Suzanne says, “I drive by this old barn often; I’ve drawn it, painted it many times. I’m fascinated by its last stand against time and weather.”

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.
