Description
"This is how I remember wine country when I first discovered it," recalls June Carey. "I couldn't believe that such a lush and verdant region existed in the hill country between the Central Valley and the coast. There was a pastoral magic in the air. Nearly every twist and turn in the road presented a view that seemed to say, 'Yes, it's that's beautiful here. Don't you wish this was where you lived.' "In fact, I lived in Chico, CA with my late husband, the marine artist David Thimgin. He and I would always make painting trips from our home in Chico to the coast via the main highways. One mid-summer day, I was driving back and decided we would go a different route. That decision was one of the best I made in my life, it opened a whole new world to me. "I grew up in farm country back East and never encountered anything like it in the areas of California I had visited. I missed the sense of a personal connection that the small farms and communities had to the land they cultivated. And here, in the Alexander Valley, I discovered it again. Added to all this beauty - they were growing grapes for wine." Vineyard Before the Harvest is a stunning wine country panorama presented as a 48" x 19" Fine Art Canvas. The edition is set at 45 pieces. Hang this exquisite work of art in your dining room and you'll be able to savor the brilliance an Alexander Valley summer day, every day, wherever your home may be.

The Artist

June Carey

Born in Takoma, Maryland, June enjoyed many hours with her family visiting The Smithsonian and The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. In 1984 she began painting full-time. As a self-taught artist she says "I just learned everything the hard way."

June has recieved numerous awards for her California landscapes and coastal scenes, including the Arts for the Parks Region II Award in 1997 and 1998. Like many Californians, June started out on the East Coast. As a teenager, she came to California. In the 1980s Carey found herself painting desert scenes and became known for this, and participating in a lot of Western art shows and competitions. Then she met her husband David Thimgan, a historical Marine artist. The two began to enjoy frequent trips to the beautiful northern California coast together and before long June began painting vineyards as well as water.

"A large part of what drives me to paint is a passion to create a place I want to be. No place on earth is more inviting to me than the wine country of Northern California. The vineyards I paint become mine." - June Carey

June is a Fellow in the American Society of Marine Artists and an Artist Member of the Californian Art Club.
