About the Painting

A dramatic summer sky bursts with color above the idyllic rolling hills of Paso Robles. The softly rounded hillsides are dotted with oaks, while a eucalyptus grove catches the warm afternoon light. The impressionistic, expressive brush strokes are thickly applied and add a sense of movement to the painting.

This large oil painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece has been framed in a wide gold floater frame for a classic-contemporary look.


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.
