About the Painting

Whale Rock lake near Paso Robles, California, is captured in viridian hues and thick, impressionistic brush strokes. The wide expanse of this landscape vista is captured in all its springtime beauty. The impasto nature of the oil paints creates a changing rhythm of texture through the painting.

"Dawning Light" is an original oil painting created on stretched canvas. The piece arrives framed in a custom floater frame, ready to hang.


Erin Hanson ArtistERIN 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.
