About the Painting

Apricot-colored hills are formed from thick layers of impasto oil paint, the hills speckled with California oak trees. The late spring grasses curve and dance in the wind, pulling the eye deeper into the painting. This landscape captures the fleeting beauty and vibrancy of an early dawn over California wine country.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting is framed in a gold floater frame with black sides. It arrives wired and 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.
