About the Painting

A dramatic sky bursts with color behind this grove of California palms. This painting captures all the life and movement of a bright and brilliant sunrise. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, alive with color and texture.

This painting has been framed in a gold leaf floater frame. The painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the edges of the canvas painted as a continuation of the piece.


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.
