Fields of Bloom, Painting in Progress, by Erin Hanson

A larger-than-life 13-foot oil on canvas piece inspired by the masters van Gogh and Monet, Fields of Bloom.

Erin Hanson is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oil painting at eight years old. As a teenager, she worked in a mural studio creating paintings for restaurants and casinos around the world. A graduate of UC Berkeley, Hanson studied Bioengineering while continuing to pursue her artistic passion.

Inspired by rock climbing Red Rock Canyon and the southern California desert, Hanson has since spent almost a decade painting the dramatic scenery of Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California. Erin Hanson has created a unique style of her own, bringing elements of classic impressionism together with modern expressionism and adding a dash of “plein-air style.” Her oil paintings stand out in a crowd, bringing a fresh new look to contemporary Western landscapes.

Fields of Bloom, Impressionistic Landscape by Erin Hanson A wide expanse of wildflowers sweep across the canvas in this large oil painting. The expressionist movement of brush strokes captures the vibrancy and color of the poppies, thistles and daisies growing among the grasses. The abstracted shapes of the landscape come together in a harmony of motion and color. This painting measures 13 feet wide by 6 1/2 feet tall. The stretched canvas is 3″ deep, with the painting continued around the edges.
