About the Painting

Lively brush strokes and vibrant color move you through this dramatic skyscape. Striving to capture the drama in the landscape and inspire others, Hanson uses all the tools at her disposal: varying texture, exciting contrasts, unexpected color, and a mosaic technique of application. The overall effect of the painting is to create an emotional impact.


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.
