About the Painting

This painting of the Grand Canyon was inspired by the first time I ever saw the Grand Canyon in person, a few years ago. Since then I have revisted the canyon at different times of the day, and this October I will be backpacking down into the canyon to explore it from a different viewpoint. The vibrant colors and repeating patterns of the landscape are surprising and awe-inspiring when seen in person, and I wanted to capture some of that wide expanse of drama in this large oil painting.

This painting was created on 1-1/2"-deep wrapped canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. This work has been framed in a gold floater frame. The angular lines of the frame beautifully complement the canyon pattern in the painting.

Exhibited The Orange Show, The Erin Hanson Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. 2016.

Available from The Medicine Man Gallery, in Tuscon, Arizona.


 

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.
