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

Jemez Day Trip
A prickly pear cactus in full bloom right beside the river. I'm using the super macro lens on my new digital camera.
The river snaking through the canyon below the Gilman tunnels (more about them tomorrow).
My friend Tom at the base of huge red rock formations.
The red cliffs of Jemez
What a fun day! We took off, went to eat at The Laughing Lizard Cafe, went to a couple of art galleries, kind of got lost and ended up at the most beautiful river site, visited Soda Dam, and just had a wonderful, relaxing time. I will post more photos tomorrow. Also:
