The character and soul of California begins with the land, an expansive, diverse and verdant landscape blessed with a Mediterranean atmosphere. This magical environmental setting creates the one of the world’s ideal grape growing locations. Nearly half of the wineries in the United States make their home here and the wine country mystique is an essential ingredient of the California Dream.

Spanish missionaries introduced wine growing grapes to the West Coast nearly 350 years ago. Vineyards have been in families for generations and this steady nurturing of the land has created a distinctive personality to California’s wine growing regions that is entirely its own.

June Carey portrays this harmony between people and the land as no other. A nurtured landscape can flourish and be as striking as a natural one, and she conveys that with passion and flair. One can feel the rich, warm summer breeze that flows across this golden field as the clouds drift through a blue violet sky.

"California Wine Country" belongs to the extremely popular family of large-scale landscape paintings collectors clamor for: "California Home," "Alexander Valley Winery" and "September Gold." Like those, "California Wine Country" is available as an over-sized, 45” x 34” MasterWork Fine Art Giclee Canvas, but in an exclusive edition of only 25. A more moderately sized and exquisite 28" x 21” Fine Art Giclee Canvas is available as well.

Define your living or dining room’s appearance with that mystical "California Wine Country" ambiance delivered by this striking June Carey work of art.




June Carey
The little farmhouse in Pennsylvania where I grew up was always alive with singing, laughter and a love of the arts. My father, a voice instructor, introduced us to the steady flow of eccentric, larger-than-life characters found in his greatest passion – the dramatic world of the Italian opera. Aida’s rich theme always seemed to be playing in the background as I went in search of a reality I could call my own, escaping into the quiet roar of the singing crickets and song of the meadowlark. I could lose myself in the turquoise twilight magic of a summer evening or breath of sweet fields of winter wheat beneath the rising sliver of a moon. I found my true love and years later found myself longing for the beautiful fields of my childhood, where everything was the way it should be. My passion springs forth through the beauty of the fertile earth, which has always been my real teacher. I began painting full time in 1982, doing my time as a starving artist while raising my young son. I was happy to trade this tragic cliché for the happy success of sell-out gallery shows and award banquets. In 1991, I married maritime artist David Thimgan, and we thrived together. On one late summer afternoon escape, traveling to the Mendocino coast, I discovered the California wine country. I was so happy to have found a place in California that reminded me of my long lost fields of Pennsylvania. I painted my first vineyard scene in 1996 and, as time passed, this interest has taken me to the countryside of Tuscany, where I feel I probably lived in a former lifetime. My Italian opera theme song has never left my heart, and somehow life seems to have come full circle, to connect, again, the passions of my life.
