About the Painting

Kolob Canyon is a lesser known entrance to Zion National Park, but home of some of the most stunning red rock cliffs in Utah. I love the dark green foliage that grows here in the high elevations, with the occasional pop of color from a stray maple or cottonwood tree. This painting holds in place that transient moment of time when the canyon is lit up with a brilliant orange sunrise. The simple composition focuses attention on the beautiful range of colors that have to be seen in person to be believed.

This painting was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. This painting does not require framing and arrives ready to hang.

Exhibited: St George Art Museum, Utah, in a solo exhibition celebrating the National Park's centennial: Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.


 

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.
