About the Painting

This painting was included in the exhibition Open Impressionism: The Works of Erin Hanson, a 10-year retrospective and study of the development of Open Impressionism at The Goddard Center in Ardmore, OK.

About the painting:
This abstracted portrayal of California wine country captures the rolling hills and rounded oak trees that dominate its landscape. Painting the curves of California was a challenge for the artist after painting the stark lines of red rock desert for so long.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a gold floater frame.


 

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.
