About the Painting

Arches National Park is a land of abstract contrasts. Dramatic red arches against a blue sky and vibrant blue shadows against the sun-lit sandstone all make for perfect painting opportunities. This small oil painting focuses on these dramatic juxtapositions of shape and color.

This painting was created on a 3/4"-deep canvas. It has been framed in a classic, museum-quality frame and arrives ready to hang.

Exhibited: St George Art Museum, Utah, in a solo exhibition celebrating the National Park's centennial: Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.


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.
