About the Painting

This painting was inspired by the coastal landscapes near Big Sur, California. The morning fog gives this painting a dramatic and beautiful atmosphere. The impasto brush strokes capture the feeling of movement and light felt when you are outdoors in the fresh coastal air.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look. The painting has been framed in a carved open-impressionist frame in 22kt gold leaf.


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.
