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

new 150 Challenge is coming!
BIG NEWS FOR 2016!
Hi all - I have exciting news.
There is a brand new
150 CHALLENGE SHOW coming!
This show will be called "FACES AND PLACES"
and will feature landscapes as well as faces and figures.
And figures in the landscape!
The paintings you see below are pretty much the only people
I have ever painted and I would like to become
a better figure painter.
And what better way than to get out of my comfort zone
and challenge myself to paint a BUNCH of them! I will also be going to painting day trips and painting the landscape.
I will paint 150 paintings in 150 days for $150 each.
They will be in oil and either on canvas or cradled gessobord.
I will post each painting here on my art blog first with commentary
and then post to the 150 CHALLENGE blog.
Here's how the 150 CHALLENGE SHOW works:
I paint a painting.
I post it on this art blog right here and also to a new 150 Challenge blog.
Each painting has a number.
You see a painting and want to buy it.
TO PURCHASE A 150 CHALLENGE PAINTING:
Call or email the gallery (information forthcoming)
Give them the number of the painting(s).
Give them your contact and purchase information.
This information will be held for Opening Night.
No paintings are sold until the show opens on Friday, September 2.
On Opening Night at the gallery (Friday, September 2)
all of the 150 paintings will be displayed for your viewing pleasure.
If you have called the gallery with your painting choices, a
sticker will be put on your paintings with your initials.
You do not need to be present to buy your painting. You can live in California or Florida!
Simply call the gallery with your numbers and information.
If two or more people have purchase stickers the same painting,
we will draw the winner out of a hat!
We have a big party with music and food
and it is great fun!
Plus, you get to see all 150 paintings on the wall at the same time.
Are you as excited as I am??
THE 150 CHALLENGE SHOW
