About the Painting

Three expansive panels capture the grandeur and color of the southwest desert. Thickly textured brush strokes move through the painting, bringing the broad outdoors to life on canvas.

This painting was created on three museum-depth canvases, with the painting continued around the edges of each stretched canvas. This painting was designed to hang without a frame, with the canvases spaced 2-4 inches apart on the wall.


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.
