About the Painting

Shaggy palms stand proudly before the jagged mountains of Anza Borrego State Park. These palms mark the entrance of the local camping ground. The desert plantlife is green and full after the spring rains. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, alive with color and motion.

This painting was done on 3/4" canvas. We have two frames available for this painting: one is an elegant, hand-carved gold frame, and the other is a smooth cherry wood frame. You can see the two framed images above.

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.
