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

Taste of Taos
Hi guys -
Every year about this time, my family all heads to Taos, New Mexico
for an annual memorial hike to honor my nephew, Carlos, who
passed away 14 years ago on October 29.
The hike is really strenuous and not all of us can make it.
Some of those who make it say that they're NEVER doing it again.
Yet, the next year they are back, ready to go again.
There were thirteen this year and they left the house at about 11am,
lost phone service, ran into snow,
and didn't get back down to the bottom of the trail until dark.
We even drove to the trailhead to look for them.
All was well, they had a great time, and we had a feast waiting for them
