About the Painting

Mustard wildflowers blanket these California hills in cadmium yellow light, glimmering like gold in the afternoon sun. This contemporary impressionist oil painting brings the movement of the outdoors to life with loose brush strokes and minimalist palette.

This original oil painting was created over an application of 24 karat gold leaf. The genuine gold glints through the layers of oil paint, catching the light in a subtle and surprising manner, and bringing the oil painting to life like never before.

The painting was created on 3/4" canvas and comes framed in a gilded, 6"-deep, museum-quality frame. The second photograph above shows the painting under gallery lighting in the frame that is included with this piece.




 

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.
