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 ArtistERIN 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.
