During a 50-mile backpack across Zion National Park, I discovered many inspiring landscapes. One of my favorite was Hop Valley, a day's hike from Kolob Canyon. The flat wash of the canyon floor was bounded by short, steep cliffs on either side, creating dramatic shadows behind the autumn cottonwoods. This painting has been framed in a gold floater frame.
This painting was displayed at the Zion Art Museum (located in Zion National Park) during the summer of 2017, for the exhibition Impressions of Zion.
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.
