About the Painting

A foggy covering slowly lifts from this California landscape, the cool filtered light casting subtle shadows across the winding roads and cultivated hills. The texture of the brush strokes gives an added dimension to the painting, its changing texture inviting the eye to move throughout the painting, exploring the juxtaposition of color and contrast.

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a dark hardwood floater frame, ready to hang.

Exhibited: Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West, Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Wickenburg, AZ, 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.
