About the Painting

Valley of Fire State Park, an hour north of Las Vegas, is a spectacular place for hiking and camping. Surrounded by fiery red sandstone at every turn, the park is steeped in color and unusual rock formations. As an interesting side note, the very first exhibition of Erin Hanson's Open Impressionism paintings took place in the Valley of Fire visitor center, in 2006.

Exhibited: Desert Caballeros Western Museum, as part of the Cowgirl Up! Exhibition, 2019.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas, and it has been framed in a custom, gold-leaf floater frame. The painting arrives ready to hang.


Erin Hanson ArtistERIN 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.

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.
