About the Painting

A brightly colored backdrop brings out the hues of a vase of sunflowers. The brush strokes are painterly and impressionistic, capturing the curving stems and flower petals. With a nod to Van Gogh's sunflower series, I have also created a series of sunflower still life paintings, always striving to bring to life their transient beauty as the blooms begin to droop and change.

"Sunflower Hues" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a closed corner, 23kt gold leaf floater frame.


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.
