Erin loves to re-visit certain landscapes time and time again throughout the year, to watch the subtle changes from season to season. Paso Robles is one of these landscapes. This painting was inspired by a recent trip to Paso, when parts of the valley were already changing into spring colors, the new and delicate green grasses hovering above their bed of sun-washed golden grass.


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 thousands 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.
