Oil painting of California desert landscape with ocotillos by impressionist artist Erin Hanson

Ocotillo Dawn



20 x 16 in



Contact Gallery

Autumn-colored ocotillo cacti decorate the high desert floor of Borrego Springs, California. This idyllic desert destination has wonderful hiking and exploring opportunities. I love painting the colorful scenery and dramatic backdrop of purple mountains that surround the valley.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will be framed in a 23kt gold leaf floater frame to complement the colors in the piece. It arrives wired and ready to hang.


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.
