Paso Robles landscape painter Erin Hanson paints with colorful abstract shapes.

Lupin Hills

This painting was inspired by a hillside near Paso Robles that was covered in purple lupin wildflowers. The warm afternoon light glints off the rounded oak trees and makes the sky glow with color. I use thick, textural brush strokes to evoke a sense of movement within the painting.


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.
