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

The gala in Corrales was so fun last night.
There was a beautiful huge clear tent to the stars with twinkly lights everywhere.
There was a guy playing guitar and singing exactly like James Taylor.
I saw a few old friends and met some new plein air painters.
It was nice because we all had something in common.
Even though most of us were painting alone, we
came together for the same reason - to paint beautiful Corrales.
My truck painting sold right away, I was so happy!
I missed the Quick Draw competition yesterday.
It was at the old church and I didn't really want to paint it,
mainly because the first one I did, I ended up scraping off.
But I later found out that you could paint anywhere near the church,
as long as you could hear the starting and stopping bell.
Darn, if I had known that, I would've gone.
Oh well, I will be there again next year....
"OUT TO PASTURE"
Below you will see my newest 145 Challenge painting, #80.
Only 79 more to go in 22 days.
Let's see, that's somewhere between three and four paintings per day.
Will I make it??? Oh, and only two weeks left to register for the End of Challenge New Mexican dinner at my home. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org $49 per person, half of proceeds go to NMDOG.
