Erin Hanson is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child. Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other recesses of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.
These paintings were all inspired by this year’s super bloom, a rare explosion of desert wildflowers. They will be presented next weekend at Erin’s gallery in San Diego, and you are invited to join Erin for the artist’s reception!
San Diego is a great destination city, with lots of fun activities to fill a weekend. The Erin Hanson Art Gallery recently opened and you may want to check it out. Call for appointment. Her website is: http://erinhanson.com/.

ART TODAY 09.26.17: “Fresh from the Easel” art by Erin Hanson, from Mendocino and Napa Valley to East Coast Travels
I recently returned from an exploratory trip to Mendocino and Napa Valley. I spent a week photographing early morning light and long afternoon shadows. I have created a few new paintings already that I am eager to share.
Expressive clouds dance above the horizon, spilling their color into the reflective pool of water below. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, capturing the motion and vibrancy of the wide outdoors.
Since this is Erin Hanson Week, we invite you to The Coastal Show at The Erin Hanson Gallery: See the collection online now!
From La Jolla to Monterey, Erin Hanson has for many years traveled the diverse and spectacular California coast for inspiration for new paintings. You are invited to:
