My stroll along the river takes me to higher ground. The terraced riverbank is rife with native grasses and shrubs. I look down to the winding path that has led me here. The river is peaceful today and there is no wind. My easel will be steady. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and wired 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.
