About the Painting

This painting is part of the Orange Series, a special collection I am creating for The Orange Show, which will be hanging in my gallery during the month of October. This series will be concentrating on the nuances and subtle beauties of the color orange. I will be playing with new color combinations and effects of light. This painting is available for purchase now, but it will be shipped at the end of October.

This painting brings to life the warm color of an early summer dawn in Paso Robles. I remember waking up before dawn this morning and driving up and down these very hilly roads along the southern outskirts of Paso. I had never explored this particular region of vineyards, and it felt like I was discovering a whole new realm of oaks and steeply graded hills. The sun came up warm and orange, peeking through the slightly hazy morning fog, casting a vibrant glow across the landscape. I use these impressionistic brush strokes and exploratory colors to try to re-capture the sense of adventure and discovery from that dawn.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting is framed in a gold floater frame. It arrives wired and ready to hang.


 

ERIN HANSON has been painting in oils since she was 8 years old. As a young artist, she worked at a mural studio creating 40-foot-tall paintings on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. After getting a degree in Bioengineering from UC Berkeley, Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. 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.
