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 wish you could see this painting in person and see the texture.
It's so buttery and thick.
Every so often I have to paint a still life, usually a bouquet of flowers.
It's in my DNA, these flowers.
I think it's harder to paint with a knife because you can never be done -
you just keep buttering paint over paint!
The ARCHITECTURE SHOW at Sumner and Dene was great last night.
I sold several paintings and saw some friends I hadn't seen for a while.
The show runs for a month, so if you have time, go down and check it out. I will keep these small paintings available for about a week - they will then be pulled, framed, and sent to the gallery. Purchase information for "SOFT" can be viewed by clicking the Paypal button below:
I delivered my paintings to Sumner and Dene Gallery for the
upcoming Architecture today and I can't wait to see the show next week.
But, as any other artists knows -
as soon as paintings are dropped off, we
start thinking about the next THING.
My next show will be a solo show in November titled,
"PAINTING THE NORTH"
Landscapes from Taos and Beyond"
So, that is written on my white board.
Those paintings will be plein air and studio on gallery wrap canvas.
I love Taos and all surrounding areas, so this will be like play for me!
AND - I am starting daily paintings again.
I'm aiming for one a day but there may be interruptions.
Like a brand new granddaughter in July. And possible knee surgery in January. These small aintings will be available on on my art blog. All other paintings will be available at Sumner and Dene Gallery.
But right now I have a question......
Would you rather see these small 6x6 and 6x8
paintings up for auction for a few days or with a Paypal Buy Now button that you can use to purchase immediately?
Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I am anxious to get started and am waiting for a new truck to make into my
"Paintmobile" to take me all over New Mexico and beyond!
Life is good right now....
Oh, and I HAD to add these images after I posted, the sunset tonight was crazy beautiful!!
