Trees are truly the people of the landscape. These maple trees have beautiful, abstract fronds that seem to dance between the layers of cadmium leaves. The distant mountains of blue and purple are the perfect contrast to the warm colors in the foreground.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a gold leaf floater frame.


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 thousands 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.
