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

A room at the Abiquiu Inn with a beautiful flowerbed
My cousin Kay and I at the pull-off spot at the Rio Chama with beautiful mountains in the background
At Ghost Ranch about 12 miles past Abiquiu
Beautiful Santuario de Chimayo in the rain
What a fun day we had yesterday. My cousin Kay and I left Albuquerque at about 9:45am. It was raining the whole way. cloudy, cool.. We stopped in Tesuque, right outside of Santa Fe, and had breakfast. The temperature was 59 degrees! Then we turned off at Nambe and drove to Chimayo. It was raining pretty good by then, but I managed to get a few photos of the church. Then we went to Espanola and turned off to go to Abiquiu. We stopped and looked at the church in Abiquiu, then on to Ghost Ranch. Everything was so green and beautiful. Wow, what a day! We had lunch at the Abiquiu Inn and the enchiladas were wonderful. All in all, it was a great day and we are already planning our next day trip. I made a couple of short videos that I will post tonight. Oh, and Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there!
