Pacific Coast Highway

by June Carey

“Stretching from sunny Southern California to the foggy forests of the North’s ‘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. “I’m 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 California’s 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.

June’s 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. June’s paintings glow with a sense of history, an admiration for the lasting, aging beauty of what came before. Like a fine California wine, June Carey’s Limted Editions become more beautiful and complicated with age.
