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 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.
