About the Painting

This painting was included in the exhibition Open Impressionism: The Works of Erin Hanson, a 10-year retrospective and study of the development of Open Impressionism at The Goddard Center in Ardmore, OK.

About the painting:
This modern painting of Joshua Tree is a great comparison with the other Joshua Tree paintings in this show. You can see the change of her style as she paints the same landscape over a span of a decade. What do you see as the biggest difference between this painting and her earlier works?

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a hand-carved, open impressionist 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.
