This abstract landscape evokes the feeling of a harbor, a secret but safe place to land. The horizon line is infused with a soft light guiding the way home. Layers of oil paint and oil stick were used to create the effect of glowing light. Many layers were used in the body of the work, which were drawn into to create texture and interest.

Getting to Know Carol

California-based oil painter Carol Jenkins’s artwork is the expression of a life-long love of the wilderness. She creates abstract paintings using subdued, earthy tones. She arranges her pigments to create a balance of organic forms that direct the eye through the composition. She is inspired by her hikes around Mount Shasta, where she stays attuned to the shapes, motion, and colors of the natural world. To Carol, the spontaneity of abstract artwork makes it the best way to recreate the immediacy and beauty of a wild terrain.
