Arizona Saguaros gather together to soak in the warmth of a late afternoon sun. The brush strokes in this painting are lively and boldly applied, bringing a modern look to a traditional landscape. The desert colors seem to jump from the canvas! This painting was inspired by the artist's recent travels to Prescott, the spring colors bringing to life the red sand and distant buttes of Arizona.


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.
