About the Painting

I got to explore the White Mountains for the first time this past autumn. This painting captures the soft morning light striking the colorful leaves, a beautiful contrast against the distant blue shadows of the mountains. The impressionistic brush strokes create intricate patterns within the painting and give a sense of motion and fluidity to the piece.

This painting was created on canvas board, and it will be framed in a plein air 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.
