About the Painting

Long waves of grass tumble in the wind in this painting of Mariposa, the beautiful wine country west of Yosemite National Park. The spring green grass is alive with color, drenched from the El Nino rain. This painting is alive with impasto texture from the oil paint, which adds a beautiful dimension to the painting.

This painting was created on 1-1/2"-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. It has been framed in a hand-carved Open Impressionist frame. Read more about the painting's details here.


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.
