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

#15-3 "LUNCH DATE"
oil on panel
This is an interesting story.
Whenever my cousin Goldie and I start out on a northern New Mexico day trip,
we always stop first at the wonderful little Tesuque Market and restaurant in Tesuque, New Mexico, which is just outside of Sante Fe.
They usually have the wood stove on, fresh breakfast burritos and cinnamon rolls. And their BLTs are fantastic.
We decided to eat lunch there one day and as we were eating,
Goldie says to me, "Don't turn around, but you will never guess who's sitting behind you!"
Goldie is such an autograph/star hound - she loves meeting famous people.
Well, of course, I slowly turned around and it was a famous actress and her friend having lunch.
My husband has always loved this actress so I really wanted to take her photo
and introduce myself but it just didn't seem appropriate.
So, I settled for shooting a photo over my shoulder as we were leaving,
which is SO much more appropriate!
I've wanted to paint this for a long time, but things got in the way.
This is for you Goldie!
