About the Painting

The famous maple tree at the Portland Japanese Garden is captured here in vivid hues of red, orange and gold. The gnarled, twisted branches create abstract shapes between the autumn leaves. Each brush stroke is thick and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms, and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. 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, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
