Artist, Oil Painting
"Hailing from Virginia, I came to NC to enjoy the ocean and a slower pace of life. Retiring from a fast paced career, it is time to begin the second portion of my life as a full-time artist. I have painted with oils since early adolescence, always feeling this was my first love. I am self-taught with some lessons in my spare time. Color, movement, texture and perspective, these catch my eye first in life. These are what I try to portray in my paintings. It is always a pleasure to create a painting with a little surprise as well." - Carol Jones
"I love to paint children and parents at the beach, birds on a wire or the essence of a flower. All of life is a painting waiting to happen! My intention is to observe our wonderful, beautiful world, thanking God for his creations and the joy of painting them." - Carol Jones
Carol Jones exhibits her oil paintings at Greater Good Gallery in New Bern, NC. On a regular basis, Jones sets up an easel in the gallery to paint on-site. Curious tourists hold creative conversations with Jones and become inspired as they watch her painting oil pigments on canvas.
