About the Painting

The recognizably rainbow hues of the Grand Canyon pop from the canvas in this oil painting by American impressionist Erin Hanson. The thickly-laden brush strokes create rhythms of texture across the desert landscape. This piece was created in Hanson's signature Open Impressionism technique, with a hint of van Gogh and a dash of plein air style.

"Amethyst Light" is an original oil painting created on stretched canvas. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, ready to hang.
