About the Painting

The wine-colored hills of Paso Robles leap from the canvas in vivid, expressionistic color. This painting kindles an emotional reaction, different for every viewer, transporting you to your own world of imagination and creativity.

This painting was created on museum-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the stretched canvas. It arrives ready to hang without a frame. (Please contact the artist if you want information on framing options for this painting.)


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.
