About the Painting

Large iris flowers grow abundantly around central Oregon's wine country. The irises come in colors I have never seen before... ivory, yellow, burgundy, pink! This painting captures some classic purple irises, painted in thick, impressionistic brush strokes and vibrant color.

"Dance of Irises" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. This original oil painting arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, 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.
