About the Painting

Rich emeralds contrast against the burning glow of sunset's last light. The darkening sky will quickly overcome the light, casting the oaks into nightfall.

This time of day is the magic hour for inspiring impressionistic paintings. The surreal orange glow of the sun can be captured in vivid brush strokes that unashamedly claim the boldest color hues. The loose brush strokes are used to capture that sense of immediacy in the landscape, the sense of wonderment of seeing such beautiful colors for such a fleeting moment.

Following in the footsteps of the modern impressionists, Hanson uses color to create an emotional impact on the viewer. The longer you behold the painting, the more detail you see, and the further you can drift into your own imagination.

This original oil painting was created on 3/4" canvas and arrives already framed in a classic gold frame, ready to hang. This painting is currently available through The Erin Hanson Gallery in Los Angeles. Please contact us to see additional photos of the painting with its frame.
