Dawn Light

This painting is in the permanent collection of the St. George Art Museum, in Saint George, Utah.

The cottonwoods still held their leaves in October, the gentle autumn light filtering around the tall canyon cliffs and through their colorful leaves. This painting of the Zion National Park campground brings the outdoors to life with motion-filled brush strokes and thick application of paint.


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 recesses of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, with hundreds of collectors eagerly anticipating her work.  As an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, Hanson is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
