About the Painting

Sunset blues pop like electric lights behind the foreground of desert rocks and joshua trees. The abstract shapes of the landscape dance together in an expression of energy and love for the outdoors. A perfect painting for anyone who loves exploring the California desert.


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.
