Magnificent panoramic view of the Grand Canyon North Rim in undulating light, as captured by impressionistic artist Erin Hanson

The grand canyon is so wide, so magnificent, that it takes an eighteen foot painting to begin to capture it. The painting communicates the crisp clear air of a November sunset on the northern rim. The colors are vivid and alive, the brush strokes full of texture and motion.


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 havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. With hundreds of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
