This winding road leads you through the grassy hillsides of Paso Robles, California wine country. In the early spring the hills are covered in crispy frost early in the morning, and then as dawn thaws the ground, the landscape turns from silver-gray to apple green. This painting captures such a morning with loose, expressive brush strokes.

This oil painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the edges of the canvas finished as a continuation of the painting. The piece has been framed and arrives ready to hang.


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.
