A New Beginning



“Any healing process can be a lengthy one,” says Steve Hanks. “Often it can be helped by attempting to visualize the future. Such is the inspiration for A New Beginning. This is, in fact, the final painting in a series of three that have used the ascent of the staircase to track this woman’s passage. By reaching the landing at the top, she has completed her growing process and is ready to move on. This staircase reminds us to take things in life one step at a time, that a promise of reward and satisfaction—the top of the staircase—and a new view of the world around you, is a situation you can help create for yourself.” “In my paintings, when there’s a sidewalk or shoreline going off into the distance, I sometimes use this area to represent people in the subject’s mind. You may notice that in A New Beginning that there are no people down the sidewalk, and that the background is left blank; the woman has visualized an open road in her future. Additionally, I used a different model for this painting than I did in the first two, to further illustrate the metamorphosis: you are not the same person at the top of the staircase that you were at the bottom.” Join us in welcoming Steve Hanks to the Greenwich Workshop family of artists. We are pleased to offer A New Beginning as one of his first fine art limited editions, an offering even more symbolic as we too look forward to a long and beautiful road ahead.

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."

Fountains Of My Youth



Fountains have long inspired thoughts of eternal youth and well-being. They have become a legendary site for registering those secret wishes of our hearts. Of course, we know that the fountain's powers are born purely of myth and fancy, and yet we are left to explain why it seems quite impossible, while splashing our bare feet in a fountain pool, to maintain any air of dignity or adult sophistication, or to keep at bay the wave of childish giddiness that floods over us. Why does some instinctive urge cause us to reach in our purse or pocket and cast our coins into the water and our wishes to the sky with all the hopefulness of a child? Here at this fountain, within this villa garden, you can take your shoes off, cool your feet, cast your coins, and make your every wish come true.

Lost In Chianti



“This scene has actually been in the works for several years. I love village scenes and I think this will be the first of many. I hadn’t planned to include the figures or the dog when I began. My friend in Italy had a sweet yellow Lab who was my buddy when I stayed there, but he got sick and passed away, so I wanted to put him in the picture. Even though the poster says my yellow Lab is lost, you can see him coming up the street. I added the women because I feel that the people are as beautiful a part of Tuscany as the land and the history. Perso means “lost” and I usually am lost when I’m there! I don’t know where this village is—I hope that I can get lost there again sometime and that I can recognize the place!”

Mission Gate



Seeking refuge from the noise and bustle of a summer’s afternoon, June Carey discovered this peaceful oasis. “After passing under the serene ivy arch,” June says, “I found myself in the haven of a mission garden, where the peace of this exquisite refuge seemed to wash the day’s difficulties away.” What struck June was that despite the serious connotation of a religious sanctuary, the area seethed with the exuberant unpredictability of nature. All this verdant life under the watch of timid saints, combined with the murmur of the garden’s ancient fountain, seemed to betray the smile of God.

Spring Fling



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

"I wanted to capture the joy of a warm spring day in the 1950´s, with the flowers starting to bloom, the parents chatting, the kids playing, a beautifully maintained 1936 Ford pickup in the driveway, and a grand CD-6 aircraft flying overhead."

The Mission At San Juan Capistrano



“Walking through the corridors of this ancient place, I find my greatest joy comes from the contrast of the verdant vines and lush gardens overtaking the crumbling walls with life,” says June Carey. “This giant pepper tree’s spreading limbs gently shades the peaceful courtyard while sunbeams haphazardly highlight the dusty paths below.” Reserve your canvas today as this striking image is likely to follow the success of June’s Mission Courtyard and Vigna Del Sole (both sold out at publisher).

The Mission Courtyard



"This is Carmel´s Mission San Carlos Borromeo, founded in 1770. I was intrigued by the star-like pattern of the Moorish window repeated in the courtyard fountain. If you have the good fortune to go to the mission, I´m afraid you won´t be able to see it from this particular angle; a wall blocks your view. I had to rely on archival photos to reconstruct the scene as it looked decades ago." - June Carey

Tuscan Cloud



Fortunate is the man who has come to know the gods of the countryside. — Virgil Several years ago Chris Young joined a group of young artists on a freewheeling tour of rural Italy. The journey’s disparate, fleeting images of beauty coupled with lingering passions eventually gave rise to the magnificent image Tuscan Cloud. Young plans to return to the region this fall and rent a restored farmhouse with friends, becoming at last a part of the landscape that has long inspired him.

Villa Di Castello



In this sumptuous new landscape by June Carey she offers her vision of the grand Italian garden. On a recent trip to Tuscany, June found herself overwhelmed by the magnificent verdant light and was compelled to bring it to you it in her view of these expansive citrus gardens and their lush surroundings. Located in the hills overlooking Florence, this classic villa was built by the Medici family in the 16th century. The architecture of these enchanting gardens are a work of creative genius: the famous fountain of Hercules and Antaeus surrounded by the geometric arrangement of driveways, flower beds, bushes and intricately cut box hedges, blend perfectly with the buildings to complete a scene of unforgettable beauty.
