Bristlecone Pine forest oil painting by contemporary impressionist artist Erin Hanson

Bristlecone Pine



30 x 40 in



Contact Gallery

The Bristlecone Pine Forest along the eastern Sierras is home to Methuselah, the oldest tree on the planet. These ancient trees are gnarled and twisted with age and stand as a testament to the perseverance of life.

The brush strokes in this painting are thick and impressionsitic, bringing a sense of motion to the painting.


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.
