About the Painting

Haystack Rock, the most iconic rock formation on the Oregon coastline, is captured here in lush, expressive brush strokes of vivid color. Walking along the soft sand beach at sunset, this vista opened up around the bend of the coastline, shadowing into dusk.

"Haystack Dusk" is an original oil painting created in Erin Hanson's signature Open Impressionism style. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color across the canvas. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame.


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.
