About the Painting

Cadmium-colored aspen trees flame brilliantly with light in this oil painting of Cedar Breaks National Park. The deep, saturated hues of the glittering aspens are a beautiful contrast against the royal blues of the distant mountains. Each impressionistic brush stroke complements the next, forming a mosaic of color and motion.

This painting was done on 1-1/2-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a gold floater frame.


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.
