About the Painting:
When driving from Los Angeles on her move to Las Vegas, before she ever saw Red Rock Canyon, Hanson was so inspired by the stark, rocky landscape around her that she decided she would focus on landscapes exclusively in her artwork. This is the first painting she created of these impressive Nevada buttes.
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.
