About the Painting

This large oil painting celebrates the beauty of the Grand Canyon with impressionistic color and thick, impasto brush strokes. The pine trees in the foreground add depth to the scene, giving you the sense of standing on the very edge of the canyon and getting lost in one of the Grand Canyon's famous sunsets.

"Grand Canyon in Triptych" was created on three separate stretched canvases, 1-1/2" deep. The edges of each individual canvas are painted as a continuation of the painting, creating a three-dimensional effect when viewed from the side. The panels should be hung 3-3/4" apart, creating a total horizontal length of 99-1/2" inches (over 8 feet long.)


 

ERIN 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.
