Brushing Crystal Light
Crystal light brushes beauty so Crystal
in open impressionism, jumping in
texture from a canvas giving texture
technique of the plein-air-styles for technique.
She refracts a light shattering as she
adds purple lines and blue shadows which adds
against Paso Robles, springtime grass against
distinct colors and brush strokes so distinct.
She uses wet-on-wet only so she
can show oil vibrant underpaintings can
create such transparency to create
technique which is her signature technique.
Erin's artistic style brushes Erin's
impressions to viewers with impressions.

It is important to identify artists and their work under their proper school of art because art and that school of art represents a life, a faith, and a way of expression and thought. For this reason, I would like to point out the following:
Impressionist painting is the use of many tiny brush strokes. Impressionism used visible brush strokes as part of its artistic style. The edges where the colors met were often blended together without harsh lines. Expressionism rooted in feelings of anxiety about the modern world painted emotions that the subject invoked in the painter. Open-impressionism is a contemporary blend of classic impressionism and modern expressionism not trying to re-create a photograph.
Erin first came up with open impressionism to let people see San Gabriel mountains, in amazing ranges of purples that appear when the sun starts setting in brilliant oranges and sherbet colors to highlights Los Angeles’ real beauty. Erin saw the sun set over the dramatic peaks plateaus of the desert with abstract shapes delineated in colors so unbelievable. From that moment she decided to paint that landscape a thousand times. She knew she would concentrate on landscapes exclusively with thick, chunky texture with oil paints for medium.
