Good morning everyone -
I would like to let everyone know that my new show is hanging at Weems Old Town, 303 Romero St. NW, in Albuquerque, NM. I have 14 paintings in the show and invite you to come down and see them. I may be doing a painting demo outside there next Saturday, will keep you posted on that.
I am beginning my paintings for the poster for Weems Artfest. I will create about four or five and the poster will be chosen from among those.
I have already started my new blog for Artfest paintings,, and will get back to those this week. I need to stock up on paints, canvas, a couple of new brushes, and I am back to work. If you have subjects that you would like to see at Artfest, please email and let me know, because I have lots of wall space at the show this year and will have lots of paintings in all sizes. I am thinking there might be some new Native American dancers, buffalo, and crows. I was inspired by the Legacy art event, which you'll read about below.
I will also be doing my second 150 CHALLENGE SHOW at Weems in the summer of 2011.
Other plans:
A new official Dee Sanchez website premiering in October 2010
I would like to curate a show myself - not sure exactly what yet, but that's floating around in my head. Lots of small paintings by lots of artists with a portion of the proceeds going to a worthy cause.
I want to have a studio show, maybe invite all of my friends and collectors over for soups, salad, and good bread around Christmas time, and have a percentage of sales go to charity. I've wanted to do that for quite some time and this may be the year!
These are just a few of my ideas for the next year, so stay tuned and thank you for supporting my work and my artistic vision!


  1. Those sound like very ambitious plans, Dee!! Good luck with all!

  2. Thanks,
    I will probably need it!
