About the Painting

I am always searching for new water lily ponds to paint. Two of my favorite ponds are in the middle of a big city, and both at an art museum -- the lily pond in Pasadena, California, at the Norton Simon Museum and the lily pond in Balboa Park, in front of the San Diego Museum of Art (which I have painted here.) I love how the light and reflections interact with the lily pads, and the blooming flowers add an extra dimension of color and texture.

"Illumination" is an original oil painting on stretched canvas. This large oil painting arrives framed in a burnished, 23kt gold leaf frame, ready to hang.

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.
