About the painting:
This modern painting of Joshua Tree is a great comparison with the other Joshua Tree paintings in this show. You can see the change of her style as she paints the same landscape over a span of a decade. What do you see as the biggest difference between this painting and her earlier works?

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a hand-carved, open impressionist frame.


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.
