ART TODAY 06.24.17: Erin Hanson’s Zion Vista, “I just want people to be happy when they see my paintings”

Zion Vista

The bridge over the Virgin River, in Zion National Park, is a popular spot to catch the beautiful red cliffs and winding river. This painting captures all the drama and magnificence of this amazing vista. The oil paint was thickly applied with a brush, the impressionsitic colors melding together to capture the fleeting light of dawn.

“I just want people to be happy when they see my paintings” says artist Erin Hanson. In her studio, golden frames surround large panels of dizzying flower fields, jagged red cliffs, rivers trickling over rocky beds, and dense mountain forests. Erin’s art draws inspiration from the great outdoors. Whether she is visiting a new city for a show or touring a national park, she is constantly in search of scenes to paint.
