It only lasted a few minutes. The highest ground in the county is host to amazing sunsets. This ridge is a remnant of the receding glacier that left behind gravel deposits and boulders along with soil that will grow anything. I can see into the next county and, for a brief moment, a flaming sunset just before darkness falls.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes varnished 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.
