The California desert turns into a rainbow of color during the late afternoon, the low rays of the sun filtering through the desert air and casting long purple shadows across the landscape. This painting of Borrego Springs in bloom brings to life this magical and fleeting time of day.

This oil painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look.


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.
