About the Painting

Glittering light filters through these entwining oak trees, the light seeming to flicker and change color as it glimmers down onto the spring-green grass. The brush strokes are painterly and thickly applied, capturing the motion of the branches, while the abstracted color has an expressionistic feel.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a gold 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.
