Landscape painting of Palm Springs by impressionist artist Erin Hanson

Mountain Dawn



12 x 12 in


Contact Gallery

After doing a show in La Quinta, I was driving back to the 10 freeway and I saw this amazing sunset reflected in the west-facing mountains. The rainbow sherbet colors were a beautiful contrast against the deep lavender shadows, and the iconic palms stood out starkly against the distant mountain range.

This painting was done on 1/8" canvas, and it arrives framed and ready to hang.
