About the Painting

Mustard plants grow in abundance along Highway 1, their canary-yellow blooms bright against the backdrop of coastal blues. Scintillating color of purple, green, and turquoise swirl together in the waters below. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, the thick oil paint standing out from the surface of the canvas, giving additional depth to the painting.

"California Hues" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame.


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.
