About the Painting

The winter of 2017 has brought unusual weather all across Southern California. In the Coachella Valley, the snow line was dramatically low. As the sun set behind the San Joaquin peaks, the snow-covered desert mountains glowed brilliant blue and purple. I captured this scene as a backdrop to a grove of date palms, with a fiery sunset glowing above.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas for a finished look. It may be displayed on your wall framed or unframed.


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.
