About the Painting

The sunsets at Joshua Tree National Park are some of the most amazing I've ever seen. I love the way the stark Joshuas stand, like abstract sculptures, against the colored heavens. I used thick, expressive brush strokes in this painting to capture the movement and life of the wide outdoors.

This painting was done on 3/4" stretched canvas, and it has been framed in a classic plein-air frame. It arrives wired and ready to hang.


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.
