About the Painting

Winding washes of rainwater weave through the floor of Canyon de Chelly. Hiking along the wash is beautiful, with ever-changing views and reflections of the red rock cliffs. This painting was created with abstracted shapes and vibrant color. Each brush stroke of oil paint is thickly applied, alive with motion and texture.

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, ready to hang.

Exhibited: St. George Art Museum, Utah, solo exhibition Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.
