Pacific Madronas, painted in thickly impasto oil paints, by modern impressionist Erin Hanson

Dance of the Madronas



36 x 48 in


Contact Gallery

The Pacific Madronas of northern Washington are most beautiful after a drenching rainfall that saturates their dark red bark. This painting was inspired by an adventure through a deserted coastal landscape, scrambling up cliffsides and battering through aggressive plant growth, to finally discover a completely secreted grove of beautiful Madrona trees. The Queen Anne's lace tumbles before the multi-hued, twisting and dancing Madrones.

This painting was created on museum-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the stretched canvas. This painting may be hung without a frame, or you may contact the artist for framing options.
