About the Painting

Erin has always wanted to paint lavender fields, but she had never seen cultivated farms until she visited Sequim, near Seattle, Washington. The brilliant purples contrasted against red and orange poppies, with the pale blue mountains towering in the distance, was one of the most idyllic landscapes she had ever seen!


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.
