Contact Gallery

This painting will be available for sale at Cowgirl Up! at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, in spring 2017.

This painting captures everything I love about the desert: unexpected color, switftly changing light, and rainbow-hued mountains. When I love a landscape I am painting, the brush strokes come fast and sure, capturing the vibrancy and motion that I feel when I am out-of-doors.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the sides for a finished look. It can be hung un-framed or in a floater frame.


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.
