This painting was inspired by an alpine meadow near Mt. Shasta called High Meadow. The colors in the painting reflect the wildflowers that proliferate there: shooting stars, blue-eyed grass and purple asters. Once the oil paint was dry I used a gloss varnish to bring out the color and then spread a thin layer of cold wax to soften the gloss finish into a smooth satin surface.

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.
