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

"PEACE ON THE JEMEZ" 8X8" oil on hardboard Available at Little Luna Gallery Madrid, NM
When I need a break, a getaway from the hustle and bustle
and I don't have a lot of time to take a long day trip, Jemez is the perfect place to go.
It's only 40 minutes from Albuquerque and some of the scenery is heart-stoppingly
beautiful. Red rocks, red cliff, unique formations. With a river running through it!
There is a pull off right next to the river that we like.
We'll pack a lunch, my cousin and I, and pull up, get out,
set up chairs, and have a picnic right next to the river.
Sometimes I will bring along my plein air gear and set up shop in my chair
and paint without moving. Those are the best times...
Doesn't matter what time of year, it's always beautiful.
