About the Painting

Cedar Breaks National Park is home to some of the largest groves of aspen trees in the country. The "Quaking Aspen" spreads across hills and mountain sides, changing color with abandon in the fall. I painted some of the aspens here against a cloudy November day.

This painting was done on 1/8" canvas, and it arrives framed and ready to hang.


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.
