About the Painting

I was hiking through Point Lobos (near Carmel, California) and saw the perfect sunset between the ancient cypress trees. The setting sun reflected rays of golden light on the ocean below, while the shadows everywhere turned hues of rich purple and blue.

"Sunset Cypress" is an original oil painting on linen board. The piece arrives framed in a gold plein air frame, 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.
