About the Painting

Hiking along the white sand beaches of Puerto Rico in early morning inspired this painting of tropical paradise. The thick brush strokes of the oil paint lend a feeling of spontaneity and light to the painting. The painting was done over 24 karat gold leaf, which sparkles and gleams beneath the paint.

This painting has been framed in a beautiful, museum-quality frame and will arrive ready to hang. The second photograph above shows how the painting looks hanging in gallery spot lighting.


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.
