About the Painting

This painting was inspired by my recent trip to Kyoto, Japan, to see the famous maple trees changing color over Thanksgiving weekend. The Sogenchi Garden in Arashiyama Park was one of the most beautiful gardens I discovered. Each maple tree was infused with a different palette of color - ranging from brilliant yellow to golden orange to deep red. This painting captures the winding path through the Buddist garden.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a gilded floater frame, ready to hang.


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.
