About the Painting

Brilliant blue rays of dawn brighten the coastline of central California. This painting is a celebration of color and life, capturing the natural beauty of California with impressionistic strokes of paint.

"Dawning Rays" was created on 1-1/2" stretched linen. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame finished in 23kt burnished gold leaf.


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.
