A winding river of light catches the reflections of a brilliant orange sunset sky, in this open impressionism painting by Erin Hanson. The brush strokes are loose and expressive, capturing the movement and vibrancy of the scene.

"River of Light" is an original oil painting on linen board, and the piece arrives framed in a plein air frame, ready to hang.
