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

Okay, I have painted maybe five figures in my painting lifetime.
They scare me.
I mean, really scare me.
I am starting to paint landscapes for my upcoming November show
and I was thinking about my daily paintings.
I don't want to paint daily little landscapes AND bigger "Painting the North landscapes" for the next three months.
I will be "landscape crazy."
What can I do that is different?
For the viewer and for me?
So I came up with an idea.
I am going to paint LITTLE FACES AND FIGURES daily on
6x6 and 6x8 panels up until the opening of my show.
I have tons of reference material to work from.
I will just pull one out of the pile and get to work.
Who knows, maybe I will fall in love with figures - who knows?
