About the Painting

"Magenta Lights" has been donated to the La Jolla Riford Library in San Diego. You can view the painting above the fireplace in the main reading room of the public library.

About the painting:
Apple green and lemon yellow hills curve into cool shadows, graced with alizarin oaks. The loose brush strokes capture the feel and emotion of central California's rolling hills. You can see a glimpse of Hanson's trademark crooked fence on the first hill.
