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 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.
