This abstract desert landscape painting has a contemporary blend of impressionism and expressionism, in a modern style dubbed Open Impressionism, by Erin Hanson. The California desert is full of beautiful color and transient light in the early dawn. The brush strokes are loose and full of motion, creating a tapestry of color and texture across the canvas.
