Pacific Coast Highway
by June Carey
Stretching from sunny Southern California to the foggy forests
of the Norths Lost Coast the renowned
Pacific Coast Highway travels through a spectacular, diverse landscape,
hundreds of years of human culture, and often, the lack there of.
Here is the essence of my coast, says June Carey.
Californians hold a special reverence for this coastline and
its highway. Having come here in my youth,
I always marveled at the atmosphere of untamed wilderness, despite
the millions of visitors, each destined to get over to the
water and enjoy some peace and quiet. However, if you have
ever, for even one winter, relied on any section of this road as
a viable thoughfare, you will know that invariably parts of it will
rudely slither away into the hungry Pacific, leaving you to find
an alternative route. Thus it maintains its beauty and respect.

||June Carey: Painting California
Artist June Carey professes a deep love for the nurtured beauty
of the earth. Im deeply affected by the terrain
that flourishes under human care, where cultivation results
in harmony between humanity and the land, June says.
Nowhere is this relationship more appealingly developed than
in Northern Californias wine country. A large part
of what drives me to paint is a passion to create a place I
want to be. The vineyards I paint become mine. Her landscapes
are instantly recognizable by their rows of lush green vines,
golden earth, and soft, warm California light or their rocky
coastlines washed in glowing sunlight and deep lavender shadows.
Junes subjects are often landscapes with historical significance
or that exemplify the particular character of a region. She
paints with an appreciation for the work both man and earth
have put into producing these landscapes, these vineyards, these
grapes and these stones. Junes paintings glow with a sense
of history, an admiration for the lasting, aging beauty of what
came before. Like a fine California wine, June Careys
Limted Editions become more beautiful and complicated with age.
