Erin Hanson, ‘Rainbow Wash’, 2015, The Erin Hanson Gallery

Winding washes of rainwater weave through the floor of Canyon de Chelly. Hiking along the wash is beautiful, with ever-changing views and reflections of the red rock cliffs. This painting was created with abstracted shapes and vibrant color. Each brush stroke of oil paint is thickly applied, alive with motion and texture.

Exhibited: St. George Art Museum, Utah, solo exhibition Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.
