Plein Air au Vin

Thomas Van Stein

On a beautiful afternoon in May Plein Air devotees gather to capture the light and setting surrounding La Presa Vineyards in Santa Ynez.  Well known for his talent and commitment to the regions art community Thomas Van Stein brought his Wednesday “Light and Shadow” art class to the vineyard to paint.  If you are familiar with Van Stein’s work it is remarkable, if it is new to you catch a peak .
Some of the Artist’s works may need to be finished at home as the wine came out and the tasting began shortly after class ended.  Wendy has studied under Thomas for several years, we think he is a wonderfully talented artist and very good friend.
