The golf course at the Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach is full of inspirational landscapes. I recently had the chance to explore Big Canyon right after a rainstorm, when the course had been closed down to golfers. I was able to explore in my golf cart for two hours as the sun started to set, all by myself, without seeing a single other soul. This trip inspired a series of paintings that I am calling the Big Canyon Collection.
This painting was done on linen board, and it comes with the hand-carved and gilded Mayen Olson frame you see pictured above.
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.
