This painting was included in the exhibition Open Impressionism: The Works of Erin Hanson, a 10-year retrospective and study of the development of Open Impressionism.

About the painting:
This is a scene that Hanson painted over and over again until she got it right in this painting. She wanted to capture the distinct contrast of the trees' dark red bark against the faded hills in the background, while bringing to life the movement of the long grasses.

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