About the Painting

The Arizona desert south of Jerome is peppered with lone saguaro cacti, nestled among the desert scrub. This painting captures the epitome of the Southwest desert with rich color, loose brushstrokes, and thick, impasto oil paint.

This painting is available for purchase through the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, as part of the Cowgirl Up! exhibition.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece arrives framed and 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.
