Sunset light illuminates the coastline of Mendocino. The colorful rocks are layered in vivid shades of rust and lavender. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, alive with texture and movement. This painting captures all the beauty of the California coast.

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


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.
