A Taste Of Heaven



June Carey presents us with yet another of the country’s fabled wine regions. The Russian River Valley was settled in the early 1800s by Russian winegrowers who had found their new home along the Northern California coast. The character and soul of the valley’s wine flows from the land and its generations of tender cultivation. A late afternoon’s walk through the vineyard, where special days are toasted with a glass of fine wine, speaks of a place abundant in the simple pleasures of life.

Above Florence



Few artists can depict the larger-than-life romance of Italy with the passion of June Carey. In her latest offering, Above Florence, we visit the beautiful hills of Impruneta, the Tuscan town located between the valleys of the Greve and the Ema streams, south of Florence. Known as “in pineta” (within the pine woods), Impruneta’s pine forests can still be seen among the olive groves on the surrounding hills. Florence, the unspoiled and fascinating birthplace of the Renaissance, lies in the distance. Above Florence is the fifth in June Carey’s “Dona di Natura” series, which explores Italy’s fabled wine country. Others in this series, including Lost in a View and Chianti Estate, are sold out at publisher. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover Italy’s beauty and hidden treasures.

Above Slide Ranch



“The sweeping hills that roll down into the ocean along this section of the coast are so special,” June Carey says. “I was struck by the unique beauty of this untamed shoreline, which in the spring, reminds me of the green coasts of the British Isles.” Slide Ranch is located in beautiful Marin County, just a few miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Once home to the Miwok Indians, today the ranch has been preserved as a national park.

Accompaniment To The Symphony Of Spring



One of the Phillips Bay collection of limited edition prints and canvases.

Spring has arrived in the coastal town of Phillips Bay and so has the annual music festival—one of the most anticipated events of the year. While the audience gathers ‘round the gazebo to look and listen while three musicians warm up, the rest of the quartet—a violinist—practices her strings solo. (Perhaps she’s a bit nervous?) A magical moment for sure, the longer light of day is still evident as the full moon rises, and the street lamps and walkway lights come on as a lovely overture to the symphony of spring.

Alexander Valley Winery



June Carey’s first love is the nurtured beauty of the earth. “I’m deeply affected by the terrain that flourishes under human care, where cultivation results in harmony between humanity and the land,” June says. Alexander Valley Winery’s reputation for exceptional grapes is considered among the best in California. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer from Alexander Valley have each earned reputations for their distinctive regional character.

Amalfi Coast



Bask in the warmth of a Mediterranean summer's day along Italy's Amalfi coast. High above coast sits the town of Ravello. An ancient path winds down from the heights to the town of Minori below.



"When I took this path, I felt like Alice in Wonderland going down the rabbit hole" tells June Carey. "I would follow along this broken stone wall, where it winds down underneath the flying buttresses on the side of the church and down past gardens and vineyards towards the sea. The village of Minori which is there at sea level out of sight in the cove. With the thousands of years of cultivating the land, you can’t tell where a terrace ends and a foundation begins."

An Evening To Remember At Thunderbird Lodge, Lake Tahoe



In the summer of 1941, the United States is still at peace although the winds of war are blowing through Europe. On the warm evening depicted in William S. Phillips´ An Evening to Remember, invited guests begin to arrive at the George Whittell Mansion (the Thunderbird Lodge at Lake Tahoe) for a festive evening of cards and conversation. Born in 1881, George Whittell Jr. was fabulously wealthy and was one of the more notorious playboys of his time. His life was fast paced and privileged, and his real ambition was to live life to its fullest, enjoying the fruits of his wealth unencumbered by the worries of productivity or work. Determined to exploit his position, he began building a retreat designed by Nevada Architect Frederick De Longchamps. By 1936, Whittell controlled nearly one third of the Tahoe Basin, including 27 miles of shoreline. Ironically, in doing so, Whittell helped to preserve the national beauty of Lake Tahoe and build what was to become one of the great historical landmarks on the lake-The Thunderbird Lodge.

And The Light Shall Prevail



As Bill Phillips tells us, "My wife Kristi and I have enjoyed several trips recently to the coastline along Oregon and California and one day we witnessed a storm that inspired the image here. The morning dawned gray with a strong wind, the sea as fierce as I’ve ever seen it, the waves crashing against the shore and throwing their spray skyward. We watched as afternoon waned and stood in awe as the sun broke through, bringing life to sea and sky. I thought of Psalm 27:1, ‘The Lord, is, my light and my salvation...’ for He, like a lighthouse, beckons us from the storms of life into the shelter of His love."

Apple Creek Yacht Club



Summer has come to Phillips Bay. Along Apple Creek, nestled among the Cotswold Hills about 30 minutes west of Phillips Bay, the sounds of meadowlarks and bullfrogs mingle with the aroma of flowers and fresh-cut grass. Apple Creek Valley maintains much of its original colonial charm. One can sit on the lawn at the Apple Creek Inn for a picnic in the sun’s warm glow, or enjoy the creek itself, with its clear spring water, swimming hole and slow current, well suited to the many idyllic pursuits of summer.   On this day, a pair of boys and their dog have gathered at the old stone footbridge for a little boating. Tying their boats to string with a metal fishing sinker as a counterweight, they set their imaginations afloat. These boys will build a rich treasury of memories over the years as members of the Apple Creek Yacht Club.

Big Little Mission Garden



“I have been to the mission garden in Carmel many times and each time taken photographs. I almost didn’t go this time; I thought, ‘Why? The pictures always look the same.’ But after a chilly and foggy day, the sun came out and I was anxious to get outside with my camera. As I entered the mission gate I was greeted by colors I had never seen there before. The garden had been replanted as it was every spring, but on this bright April afternoon every plant and flower seemed to glow with exuberance and sing with unreal color. It was a timely reminder that there is something new and beautiful each day, even in this same old world.”

Bougainvillea



Just after the turn of the century, Father St. John O´Sullivan became pastor of the Mission San Juan Capistrano. Both seemed fated to perish from this earth: Father O´Sullivan from tuberculosis, the Mission from the ravages of time. It was the priest´s inspiration to restore the Mission to its previous splendor and create throughout it magnificent gardens to rival those of the Alhambra in Spain."I have yet to see a painting or photograph of this section of the main courtyard that does not feature this wonderful pair of bougainvillea vines," says June Carey of Bougainvillea. "It´s a terrific image to think of, Father O´Sullivan possibly planting, but certainly nurturing, these beautiful plants to become one of the Mission´s most noted centerpieces. Such a passion for the gifts of the land seems to have a power that extends far beyond simple beauty. Father O´Sullivan survived to oversee the Mission´s restoration for twenty-three years."

Cabernet Sauvignon



"After the busy harvest time in the Alexander Valley the days get shorter," says artist June Carey, "and the cool, crisp air and autumn rains bring rich color to the vines and the new green grass between the rows. I feel it is a time for the vineyards to show off after a long season of hard work. This area in North Sonoma County is known for its superior Cabernet Sauvignon."

California Home



A limited edition canvas sized to match the artist´s dramatic original>
"In spite of the stereotype much of the world sees, California is still about the land," says June Carey. "I have gone in search of the peaceful places the old California´ captured by the early Aplein air (outdoor) painters that have been bypassed by the freeways. Yes, they are still to be found!"

Cape Neddick Dawn



In Cape Neddick Dawn, Bill beautifully captures that sense of serenity that enfolds us when we view a sunrise by the sea. Quietly, the cold, restless waves grow still; the schooner’s white sails shift to pale gold. Here, no footprints mar the freshly fallen snow ashore for the lightkeeper has not yet had a visitor this morning. But he is clearly expecting you—his home on the hill beckons with a warm, comforting glow and a bright light shines in the boathouse.

Cascade Of Light



“I loved the challenge of creating something so large and powerful. Just taking the photographs to use while painting was quite an adventure! I made three trips to photograph the area in record-breaking heat last July. I decided that I wanted to paint early morning light on the falls—and I am not a morning person. I got up at five a.m. to catch the light and it was worth it. In order to get the shot, I held my camera strap between my teeth and climbed out over the boulders of Eagle Falls. I held the camera at arms length and hoped for the best. Just getting to paint this scene was a journey, but the pleasure it brings to everyone (including myself) makes it more than worth it.”
