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

beauty close to home
Feeling better today, but no painting yet.
Being sick is the time to rest and the ideas about life and work are flowing.
beautiful photos of spring and summer!
Oh, and to my artist friends, you are welcome to paint from any of these photos
as long as you credit me, the photographer!
If you do, send it to me and I will post your painting on my blog.

Daisies? Sunflowers? Black-eyed Susans? I hope you enjoyed this lovely scenic tour of some of my favorite flower and garden photos from last year. I can't wait to get out there and do my day trip, plein air, photo-taking excursions soon!
