About the Painting

Bryce Canyon after a snowfall is one of the most beautiful sights to see in the Southwest. Hiking early in the morning to shake off the sub-freezing temperature is the best way to enjoy Bryce. The steepled rock formations reflect red light that bounces around within the pillars, while the tall pines are a beautiful contrast against the red.

The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, capturing the abstract nature of the landscape with a free hand and vibrant color.

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, 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.
