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

As most of you know, my trusty Canon Powershot camera broke
and I've been using my tiny tiny Sony Cybershot until I'm able to go camera shopping.
I think I finally figured out how to take close ups with this little one, but I feel like I'm using a child's toy!
Wow, it was warm yesterday and all of my apricot buds opened up.
They are absolutely beautiful.
It's been so warm here- no winter at all - that I didn't even have time to prune anything.
I guess I can do it anyway, maybe the apricots will be bigger in the end.
Another group of open blossoms.
I never knew that apricots had such pretty blooms - look at all of that red and yellow!
This is a peach blossom.
Now this tree actually looks a little scraggly - but last year it gave us tons of peaches.
I'll take more photos in a few days and see if it looks better.
This tree should have definitely been pruned in early January.
This is a morning "rays of sunshine" view of my field and old garden spot.
That's Bella looking beautiful.
On to the studio.....
I make lists. Lots of lists.
I make lists of lists.
I may have five lists going on at once, overlapping chores, projects, and the like.
I also have this write-on wipe-off planner up in my studio and I NEVER use it.
My kids (specifically my son-in-law) thinks it's very funny to write things on it.
So he made me an appointment on my planner to write on my planner. Cute.
