About the Painting

Erin's newest Crystal Light painting is alive with dramatic color and shadowing effects. The trees capture and refract the crystalline light into mosaic shapes of variegated color. Each brush stroke is applied with minimal layering, creating a spontaneous, exuberant look to the painting.

This painting was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. This painting does not require framing and arrives 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.
