About the Painting

During a 5-day backpack through Zion, we were faced with a solid day of rain while hiking the high plateaus. Finally at sunset, the clouds parted and we saw amazing, color-drenched vistas all around us. This painting captures the last light seen through the windswept pines on the plateau.

This painting was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the edges painted all around as a continuation of the piece. You may hang it without framing if desired.


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.
