About the Painting

The hill country north of Fredericksburg, Texas, is abloom with bluebonnets in spring, while the low watering pools capture oaken reflections in their surfaces. The warm hues of early morning bathe the landscape in delicate pinks and orange sherbet. This restful painting is yet alive with motion through the thickly applied brushstrokes, which seem to form a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.


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.
