About the Painting

The famous maple tree in Portland's Japenese Gardens is probably the most photographed tree in all of the northwest. As a new northwesterner myself, I had to paint this beautiful tree. The green underpainting makes the yellows and reds of the foliage come alive.

"Japanese Garden" is an original oil painting created on linen board. The piece arrives framed in a plein air frame, ready to hang.


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.
