I ran across this item on the Santa Ynez Valley News website, and it reminded me of a vacation a few years ago to that area of the central California coast, specifically Buellton, Solvang, Los Olivos and Santa Ynez.
Along with the wine-tasting, I particularly remember visiting the small but impressive (Art) Gallery Los Olivos.
It would be great to visit the area again during John Mac Kah's workshop. Although I am not familiar with his work, I saw several of his beautiful paintings on his website and wanted to blog about this. I'm sure it will be a worthwhile experience for those painters attending.
Hope you can make it to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley.
