About the Painting

One of Hanson's most iconic paintings, "The Path" is an expressionistic celebration of color and motion. This inviting path, lined with California oak trees, beckons you into another land of beauty and imagination. The brush strokes, loose and lively, create a vivid interplay of color and light between the oak branches.


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.
