Original Oil Paintings by Artist Suzanne Poursine Massion - "Prairie Paintings"

Prairie

Suzanne Poursine Massion

   I paint the prairies, farmland, open spaces, and forests of my mid-western home, because they are quickly disappearing under asphalt and roof tops.

    The bulldozer will level some of the gently rolling hills, dig man-made lakes, and permanently alter the land. Familiar landmarks will be wiped out, gone forever.

    My paintings give these unique spaces a second life. Collectors of my work tell me they are not just purchasing a painting, but acquiring a window into a vanishing world.

    A tall grass prairie, a golden field of ripening soy beans, acres of field corn, tasseled out and blowing in the wind are breath-taking sights. All have found a place on my canvas.

    Many people who love landscape art look for a certain quality in the paintings they buy; a view to the outdoors. A painting can take you to fields of grasses waving in the breeze, a small hidden pond reflecting the color of the trees along its shores, the cool shade of an oak-hickory woods beckoning you to rest a while, or a winding lane that says, "Take a stroll and discover a secret destination".

    It's quite a thrill; having an art collector share my view and wish to own one of my landscapes. Then I know something I created has found a new home.
