About the Painting

Aspen trees are alive with light and color in this original oil painting. Landscapes like this are best portrayed in a loose, impressionistic brush stroke, the painterly strokes almost careless in their freedom and beauty. The painting exudes joy in the essence of color.

This painting was created over 24 karat gold leaf, applied directly to the canvas as an "underpainting." The thin sheets of genuine gold gleam with subtle light from between the brush strokes, catching the eye and making the painting seem to glow from within. This style of painting is almost a Gustav Klimt meets Van Gogh.

Like all the 24 Karat Collection paintings, this piece was painted on 3/4" canvas and arrives framed in a classic gilded frame, 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.
