About the Painting

Billowing cumulus clouds catch the fading sunlight, turning brilliant hues of cotton candy pink, sherbet orange, and butter yellow. Every minute brings a change of light and color, as the sun sets below the horizon.

"Billows of Light" was created on 1-1/2' canvas, with the sides of the canvas painted as a continuation of the painting. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, alive with color and motion. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, 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. 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.
