About the Painting

This painting was inspired by a quiet morning watching the dawn break at La Jolla Point. The park was green and lush, with this beautiful wind-sculpted tree stark against the changing color of the sky. I used thick, impasto oil paint, applied only with a brush, to capture this tranquil moment.

This paintings was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the sides of the canvas for a finished look. The painting has been framed in a carved gold floater frame.

This painting will be included in the exhibition Erin Hanson: Coastal California, at The Erin Hanson Gallery in San Diego. The artist's reception will take place on June 24th. If you purchase this painting online, it will be shipped to you the week of June 26th.


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.
