About the Painting

I can see why Van Gogh loved to paint wilted sunflowers... the drooping shapes and richer hues of orange make for very interesting compositions! I love the way the warm yellows of the sunflowers pop against the lavish red backdrop. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, capturing the flowing lines of the still life.


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.
