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 RETRO CHALLENGE!!

An online wet-off-the-easel countdown and new blog starting at Painting #150 and ending with Painting #1
A huge PARTY Friday, September 26, 2014, on opening night with food, music, and fun
For all of my clients and collectors who have been
asking for new acrylic and ink paintings - it's time!
I was trying to think of something new and interesting
to do for 2014, and something that would REALLY be a challenge for me.
I really love painting in oils, they are my passion.
BUT - I miss my lines sometimes.
Lines are tedious and time consuming for me - thus the challenge.
What better way to really create a new challenge for myself
than go back to the beginning?
Artists always like to keep moving forward, trying new things and not becoming stale in their creativity.
I have been painting in oils for so long that I often wonder
if my old school style paintings would be any different from the past.
I guess we will find out!
Here's a sampling of Old School Retro:
I hope you will all be as excited as I am to begin this journey.
The Way It Works:
- I paint the paintings
- you watch online
- If you see a painting you like, you call or email with your info
- If no one else wants that painting on opening night, it's yours
- If two or more want the same painting, we do a drawing
- We pick your name, the painting is yours
So, it doesn't matter where you are, you can still buy a painting!
