About the painting:
After seeing photos of Delicate Arch, Hanson made the journey to Arches to see the amazing rock formations for herself. She has since explored Arches National Park a half dozen times, each time finding something new in the changing desert. This was one of the first paintings Hanson created of Delicate Arch.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a gold floater frame.


 

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 hundreds 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.
