Zion National Park: cottonwood trees at the Lodge, oil painting by Erin Hanson

At the Lodge



60 x 40 in



Contact Gallery

A rainy afternoon at the Lodge, deep in the canyons of Zion National Park, let me see the autumn-hued cottonwoods in a whole new light, their colors drenched and saturated in the low light. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

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, in a solo exhibition celebrating the National Park's centennial: Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.
