About the Painting

Barker Dam at Joshua Tree National Park is an oasis of color during the early dawn. The vibrant colors of the early light casts its hue across the granite rock formations, lighting them with fire. The still waters of the dam capture perfect reflections of the surrounding desertscape.

This painting was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the edges painted around the sides. The painting arrives framed in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, ready to hang.


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.
