About the painting:
Hanson has always been drawn to the dramatic in landscapes, and nothing is as dramatic as the wide open desertscapes and majestic buttes of Utah and Arizona. The landscape is almost too incredible to take in, and Hanson has painted it over and over, trying to recapture the magic she feels when she sees it in person.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a gold floater frame.


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.
