Montana Sky

By Erin Hanson | December 3, 2018

Erin Hanson has, for her landscape paintings, observed the colored cliffs of Utah and Nevada, hiked through Zion National Park and Monument Valley, and studied the diversity of the Anza-Borrego Desert and Joshua Tree National Park. The work shown here, Montana Sky (oil on canvas, 30” × 20”), is typical of her so-called Open Impressionistic technique, which involves the application of impasto brushstrokes, the paint premixed and unblended on the canvas—resulting in mosaics of texture and luminous color.
