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

it's party time!
150 CHALLENGE SHOW
You guys, my 150 CHALLENGE SHOW is almost done!
It's only taken me an extra six months (maybe more)
longer than I originally intended.
I have 28 paintings left and so much material.
How am I going to decide what to paint?
I will go through reference photos on a daily basis
and choose just what feels right for that day.
This was my first painting coming back from plein air
painting in Questa.
It feels weird in a way to be back working in the studio.
It also feels nice because there are no bugs and no wind.
And I have ceiling fans and air conditioning!
Can't argue with that.
This is a poppy duet from a photo taken of a beautiful garden
in Corrales, New Mexico.
I really shouldn't paint at night because there are too
many distracting lights, but sometimes you just have to PAINT.
These poppies make me happy.
I have many wonderful paintings from the
CHALLENGE SHOW in my studio.
I am now planning my ART GARDEN party!
The party is a once a year extravaganza under the
cottonwood trees at my north valley home.
The event will feature great Mexican food, music by Mezcla Latina,
and a very special Studio Sale.
