About the Painting

Cool tones of pre-dawn perfectly capture the dramatic and somewhat surreal landscape of Big Bend National Park. Tall, lanky ocotillo cacti dot the landscape in every direction, creating abstract shapes with their bending stalks.

This painting will be on display at the Museum of the Big Bend, during the solo exhibition Erin Hanson: Impressions of Big Bend Country. This painting will be ready to ship after January 10th, 2019. Click here to view the collection.

This painting has been framed in a custom-made gold frame. The painting arrives 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.
