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

SANTUARIO DE CHIMAYO
Chimayo: there are actually two pigeons on the roof Lake Santa Cruz near Nambe and Chimayo Running stream, field, and mountains in back of the church
My day trip was so relaxing and fun! I took about 160 pictures and I'm bummed because I forgot to take a video. But oh well - another day trip in October when the leaves are turning.
I haven't been to the church for about 9 years and it has changed. They have a big new parking area, new upgrades, a new chain link fence that was filled with handmade wooden twig crosses, and new outside seating and stations of the cross. We went inside the church, lit candles, said prayers, and scooped healing dirt from the hole in the floor. It was a good day.
