and other things....
This is my daily art blog.
I'm artist Dee Sanchez and I live and work in Alameda, New Mexico - the land of blue skies, red hills, and three unique cultures.
What a beautiful place to paint! Join me on my daily painting quest, my plein air adventures, my video logs, my "getting ready for a show" preparations, my painting tips, and I may even throw in an opinion or two...I also document my struggles with getting healthy and my crazy family life
I have to do it It's part of me It's thinking creatively It's fills my soul It's hard
It's solitude It's work It's lonely It's magnificent It's time consuming It takes over my life I forget everything else It's doing what I love It's letting other people inside my soul It's like breathing
I wrote this a long time ago and it still stands to this day.
Making art is like pulling teeth sometimes.
And other times, it's like magic happens so easily.
I had my "tentative" schedule lined up and ready
to start working on right after the new year.
Sometimes life has other plans.
Things just happen organically.
So here are the possibilities now:
April Two woman show in Jemez
May Plein Air Santa Fe Fiesta (if I get in)
plein air all over Corrales for show
painting for Placitas Garden Tour
June painting at Corrales Garden Tour
Group show at Corrales Fine Arts
Four day painting trip in Taos - work AND relaxation
Sept my Art Party and Studio Sale
October Group show for LPNM
Some of these events are tentative at this point.
In the meantime, I've been working!
Here are my latest paintings:
I'm still painting for my group, "LET'S PAINT NEW MEXICO."
We also have a new facebook group coming:
"LET'S PAINT STILL LIFE!"
This was an idea conceived by artist Robyn Wellman.
It starts February 1 on facebook.
Also, starting next week, each Friday will be my blog day for:
LET'S KEEP IT PERSONAL!
It's just what it sounds like, I talk about personal stuff.
I hope "we" can handle it! Enjoy your weekend, It's a little warmer.....
