Zion plateau hiking inspired artwork landscape painting by Erin Hanson.

Sunfall on the Plateau



34 x 20 in


Contact Gallery

During a 5-day backpack through Zion, we were faced with a solid day of rain while hiking the high plateaus. Finally at sunset, the clouds parted and we saw amazing, color-drenched vistas all around us. This painting captures the last light seen through the windswept pines on the plateau.

This painting was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the edges painted all around as a continuation of the piece. You may hang it without framing if desired.
