About the Painting

This painting was inspired by October explorations in Colorado, seeking out the brilliant color changes of the aspens and cottonwoods. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

This painting was created over 24 karat gold leaf, applied directly to the canvas as an "underpainting." The thin sheets of genuine gold gleam with subtle light from between the brush strokes, catching the eye and making the painting seem to glow from within. This style of painting is almost a Gustav Klimt meets Van Gogh.

Like all the 24 Karat Collection paintings, this piece was painted on 3/4" canvas and arrives framed in a classic gilded frame, ready to hang. Please contact the artist for more pictures and video of the finished piece.

Exhibited: St George Art Museum, Utah, in a solo exhibition celebrating the National Park's centennial: Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.


 

ERIN HANSON has been painting in oils since she was 8 years old. As a young artist, she worked at a mural studio creating 40-foot-tall paintings on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. After getting a degree in Bioengineering from UC Berkeley, Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. 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.
