Grand Canyon North Rim oil painting landscape by renowned artist Erin Hanson

Northern Rim



36 x 48 in



Contact Gallery

Having spent so many years painting the Arizona landscape, it is strange that it wasn't until last November that Erin finally made it to the Grand Canyon. This is a painting of the north rim, a light dusting of snow still on the ground, the air cool and crisp beneath the evergreens.


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.
