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.

Ahwahnee - The Deep Grassy Valley



The Yosemite people called Yosemite Valley Awooni or Owwo for (gaping) “mouth,” referring to the appearance of the valley’s walls from the village of Ahwahnee, the largest and most powerful Indian village in the valley. The natives also called themselves Ah-wah-ne-chee, or “dwellers of Ahwahnee.” Chief Tenaya tried to explain the meaning of “Ahwahnee” to white men by using sign language, but was mistakingly interpreted as saying “deep grassy valley.” In his own language Tenaya was trying to sign “gaping mouth.” In 1851, the US government tried to drive the natives out of Ahwahnee, but Chief Tenaya never submitted and never signed a treaty. Naturalist and Sierra Club founder, John Muir, described Yosemite as “a place of rest, a refuge from the roar and dust in which one gains the advantages of solitude. This one noble park is big enough and rich enough for a whole life of study and aesthetic enjoyment, as none can escape its charms of natural beauty.” Muir’s sentiment is vividly portrayed in artist’s Stephen Lyman’s masterful Ahwahnee.

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.”
