A dramatic sky explodes with color in this contemporary impressionist oil painting. Each brush stroke plays a part in the joy and motion of the skyscape. The colors are vibrant and pure, mixed from a limited palette of only four colors.

This diptych was created on two 36x48 canvases, each a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the sides of the canvas. This piece is designed to hang without framing, although the two pieces could be hung together or separately, framed or unframed.


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.
