About the Painting

Hiking through the winding trails of southern Utah's aspen forests is peaceful and invigorating. The vibrant hues of gold and orange shimmer around you, while the coin-shaped leaves rustle and clap in the wind. This painting captures the beauty of Cedar Breaks National Park with thick, impressionistic brush strokes.

"Aspens on Blue" is an original oil painting created on linen boad. The piece arrives framed in a black and gold plein air frame.

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.
