Everyone in Northern California is familiar with the coastline in Mendocino County. It is cool
and moist like Cleone and Fort Bragg that the region descends upon when it’s hot and dry inland.
It is a romantic place of expansive beaches, rocky headlands and crashing surf. The more
adventurous try to time their visits to the arrival of storms because the waves can be so huge.
“I’ve found that seascapes are a dream to paint,” confides June Carey. “Because the water is moving
and flowing (unlike a static landscape), I have much more freedom in how to paint it. I’m not
locked into creating details and can play more with forms and motion. This painting captures
MacKerricher State Park in a rare sunny, albeit misty, morning light.”
