Grand Canyon vista oil painting by modern impressionist Erin Hanson.

Last October I went backpacking down into the Grand Canyon. The weather was perfect, the scenery was amazing, and I now have dozens of paintings stored in my mind waiting to be painted. This painting was inspired by the last day hiking out of the canyon, looking back over my shoulder into an ever-changing vista of rainbow color.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been wired 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 hundreds 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.
