Field of Blooms: Erin's Largest Single Canvas

The Work in Progress of Hanson's Field of Blooms

Saturday, February 20, 2016

Field of Bloom Description

Field of Blooms is the pillar of Hanson's most recent Romance in Bloom collection. As Erin's largest single canvas she has completed, it measures 13-feet wide and when viewed in person leaves most slack-jawed.

Hanson’s use of color pits striking purples against apple greens and swirls of cherry reds; nary a color of the rainbow goes missing from the mix. Somehow it appears realistic, though clearly breaching into the realm of expressionism. This noted contemporary impressionist has coined the term “open-impressionism” to describe her work.

Collectors and fans often immediately associate the petite artist to the likes of Monet, Cezanne, William Wendt, and most frequently van Gogh, whose swirling patterns and contrasting colors seem to have set the precedent for Hanson’s unbridled representations of nature.
