Erin Hanson: Colors of Paso
October 4, 2012 - October 28, 2012
Loose brush strokes and intriguing textures communicate the vivid colors of Paso Robles. Erin Hanson's oil paintings bring a never-before-seen style to California landscapes. Each painting is a unique view of the landscape, passionate and fresh. This is a must-see exhibit for art collectors and nature lovers alike.
From Erin Hanson: "I first saw Paso Robles in person on a Valentines' trip a few years ago. I was immediately drawn to the perfect rounded hills and beautiful old oak trees dotting the green fields. I had been painting desert landscapes for so long, and it was quite a change to go from painting sharply angled, red rock buttes and spiky cacti to softly curved hills and rounded trees. Intrigued by the challenge, I came back to Paso Robles a few months later and captured thousands of images during a week-long photography trip. The apple green grass and yellow wildflowers were absolutely stunning! Ever since then, I have been painting Paso Robles as passionately as I have painted Utah and Arizona. I return several times a year to get re-inspired, always amazed at the seasonal landscape changes, and always seeking out those little moments of beauty that are hidden away from the bustle of everyday life."
