About the Painting

This painting was inspired by my recent backpacking trip down into the Grand Canyon. Starting from the canyon's rim 2 hours before dawn, I raced down the long switchbacks down from the rim so I could have a front-and-center view of the sunrise striking down into the canyon. This piece captures all the grandeur of Arizona with loose, impressionistic brush strokes.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms, and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. 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, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
