About the Painting

Wild sunflowers grow in exuberant, frolicking clusters along the roadside in southern Utah. These hardy flowers provide a beautiful pop of color to the desert landscape.

"Wild Sunflowers" is an original oil painting on stretched canvas, created in Hanson's signature Open Impressionism painting style of loose, expressive brush strokes, no overlapping brushwork, and a limited palette of only five colors.


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.
