About the Painting

A dreamy morning in Cedar Breaks National Park, a few hours after daybreak, found the artist lounging alongside this creekbed, eating crackers and cheese. The aspens were drenched in color, almost electric with orange and yellow, a striking contrast against the curves of slough grasses below and the distant layers of blue mountains beyond.

This original oil painting was created over an application of 24 karat gold leaf. The genuine gold glints through the layers of oil paint, catching the light in a subtle and surprising manner, and bringing the oil painting to life like never before.

This 2"-gallery depth painting comes framed in a custom-made floater frame that was hand plated in 24 karat gold leaf.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms, and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
