About the Painting:
When Hanson first began painting Red Rock Canyon, she painted a series of close-up rock abstracts. She thought at the time she might focus entirely on the abstract nature of the desert, but instead she fell in love with painting the wide open vistas and landscapes that would dominate her portfolio in later years.


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.
