About the Painting

This painting captures the grandeur and wide expanse of Zion National Park in southern Utah. The loose, painterly brush strokes are alive with texture, creating a three-dimensional rhythm of color upon the canvas.

This oil painting was done on a canvas gilded in 24kt gold leaf. The gold leaf shines through sections of the painting, creating an additional glow of light within the piece. The painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The work has been framed in a carved gold open impressionist frame.

This painting was exhibited in the The Red Rock Show at The Erin Hanson Gallery, June 16th, 2018. Click here to view the other Red Rock paintings.

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.
