About the Painting

The La Jolla Cove is captured here in vibrant color and thick oil paint. The early morning light casts an orange hue across the tops of the rocky cliffs and California palm trees. The loose brush strokes have a beautiful, impressionistic feel, alive with color and motion.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look. The painting has been framed in a hand-carved floater frame.

Please note: this painting will be included in the exhibition Erin Hanson: Coastal California, at The Erin Hanson Gallery, on June 24th. The painting is available for purchase now, but it won't be shipped until 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.
