About the Painting

I have long been enamored by the effect of ground lighting on trees and landscape in the early evening. At this early time of night, the sky is rich and velvety-blue, like a blue-toned jewel, setting off the rich natural colors of the oak tree, lit from underneath by a ground spotlight. This is the first in a series of "Night Paintings" that I plan on creating.

"Night Oak" is an original oil painting on linen board. The piece arrives framed in a black and gold plein air frame.


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.
