About the Painting

This painting exhibited at the Cowgirl Up! Desert Caballeros Western Museum, in the spring of 2017.

This painting captures everything I love about the desert: unexpected color, swiftly changing light, and rainbow-hued mountains. When I love a landscape I am painting, the brush strokes come fast and sure, capturing the vibrancy and motion that I feel when I am out-of-doors.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the sides for a finished look. It can be hung un-framed or in a floater frame.


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.
