About the Painting

I am always drawn to paint the famous cypress trees of the Monterey peninsula. Their dramatic, wind-shaped branches are like beautiful abstract sculptures. Their pearly bark seems to reflect all the colors of the sun, from bright white to sherbet pink and tangerine orange. This painting captures a grove of cypress trees growing along Pebble Beach's 17 Mile Drive.

"Cypress at Monterey" is an original oil painting created on gallery-depth canvas, and framed in a hand-made, closed corner floater frame.


 

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.
