This painting was inspired by October explorations in Colorado, seeking out the brilliant color changes of the aspens and cottonwoods. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.
This painting was created over 24 karat gold leaf, applied directly to the canvas as an "underpainting." The thin sheets of genuine gold gleam with subtle light from between the brush strokes, catching the eye and making the painting seem to glow from within. This style of painting is almost a Gustav Klimt meets Van Gogh.
Like all the 24 Karat Collection paintings, this piece was painted on 3/4" canvas and arrives framed in a classic gilded frame, ready to hang. Please contact the artist for more pictures and video of the finished piece.
Exhibited: St George Art Museum, Utah, in a solo exhibition celebrating the National Park's centennial: Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.
