Need help identifying an artist signature

I picked up this oil painting the other day and I haven't had any luck identifying the artist. Thanks in advance for any help in determining the artist of the work.

Hello silverbar, it's hard to tell exactly. I'm definitely not an expert or an appraiser, but Lebrun Jenkins' (1876 - 1952) paintings are very similar to to the one you've posted. Isn't there any clue or writing on the back of the painting? or a date? is it painted on canvas or on a board?

New adventures.

I also found Lebrun Jenkins however the signatures I found didn't match especially since the ones I found he signed his entire name. I also found one which was painted on masonite which was rubber stamped on the back side. There was also a Gary Jenkins that had a signature more like block letters.

Hi! Thank you both for checking. Unfortunately, I could not find anything listed on the back. The painting appears to be on a canvas. I found a few paintings on eBay from a "Jenkins" of clowns and horses, but I couldn't find any landscapes. The sig on those does look similar however. One of those listed even had the same style frame.
