This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter known for regional landscape painting in Connecticut and also in Asia, especially Thailand, Curtis Hanson, whose studio is in Housatonic, Connecticut says of these seemingly disperate subjects:  "I paint lily ponds here, I paint lotus ponds there.  It is just my work."

In Thailand, he is especially focused on the northeastern agricultural landscape in an area called Esan, where people live below the country's poverty level and are unaffected by the prosperity of many persons in the cities.  In these natural surroundings, undisturbed by civilization, he finds many similarities to his New England subjects.

Curtis Hanson is a practicing Buddhist, and also spends much time in Asia around the 'Watt', which is the temple in Thailand where monks live and work.  In his Thai Sojourn series, he reflects the serene monastic life.

He is also fascinated by water and reflection and in Laos, did many marine painting along the Mekong Delta, especially the graceful river boats that are sleek, efficient and brightly colored.  In addition, he has painted nocturnes, so dark that the only color other than black is in the sky.

Of special influence on Hanson are painters Ralph Blacklock and George Inness as well as Barbizon artists Camille Corot and Charles Daubigny.
