About the Painting

The desert buttes of Arizona are captured here in the vivid colors of the sunset. The brushstrokes are thick and impressionistic, creating a three-dimensional sense of space and movement within the painting.

This painting won "Best in Show" at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum "Cowgirl Up!" exhibition in 2019.

This piece was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting has been framed in a simple gold floater frame, and it arrives ready to hang.


ERIN HANSON has been painting in oils since she was 8 years old. As a young artist, she worked at a mural studio creating 40-foot-tall paintings on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. After getting a degree in Bioengineering from UC Berkeley, Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. 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.
