Oil on Canvas

Erin Hanson

About The Artist

“My goal is to capture the beauty of light during the golden hour and transform ordinary landscapes into extraordinary mosaics of color and texture. I apply oil paints in thick, expressive brushstrokes laid side-by-side, without blending, in the style I coined Open Impressionism. My goal for each painting is to capture a moment in time so beautiful it makes you catch your breath when you see it. I want my paintings to speak to you again and again, drawing you in, making you part of the impressionistic movement."


-- Erin Hanson


All her life, Erin Hanson has been inspired by the beauty of the outdoors. As the elder sister of three Boy Scouting brothers, Erin grew up spending her summers backpacking and camping all over the Western states. Her Open Impressionism paintings capture the wide-open spaces and natural beauty she loves. Characterized by wide, loose brush strokes, her paintings seem filled with the wind and light of the outdoors.
