The Blog is Over, Long Live the Blog!

The Velasquez Artistry blog is no more- I will keep this page up and the archives available for history's sake. And now to announce a shiny new blog- Brightly Hude News! Yes, all of my updates will be posted there and in the following media outlets:

Brightly Hude Studio Website

Brightly Hude News
Facebook Fan Page
Brightly Hude Yahoo Group

So, check them all out, but especially see the blog, as there is a give-away going on right now! You can also subscribe to that blog, just like you previously could here.

Thanks for being great blog readers. Onwards and upwards!

New For 2011...

Happy New Year Everyone!

It is with great joy that I announce a new beginning for me, and a new name for my business. I am getting married, and my new name will be Adalee Hude, so therefore, I am pleased to announce that Velasquez Artistry shall henceforth be known as:

I'd say the future is looking bright!

The website is in the process of being updated, and VelasquezArtistry (dot) com will soon link to BrightlyHude (dot) com. New things are in the works, such as a new blog, a new Facebook page, and more. And new sculptures to come too! Thank you all for being such good customers under Velasquez Artistry- I hope to serve you well under the new Brightly Hude title!

-Adalee :)

Hi everyone!

Just thought I'd share a sneak peek of the Callahans that are coming up for sale tomorrow! The black & white tobi isn't quite done, but he should be going into the kiln tonight, and ready to go to a new home tomorrow! It has been good, fun, hard-work getting these guys done. Callahan is a neat piece to paint, and I am happy that I was able to fit him in before the end of the year, and my big event & move. I hope everyone's December has started well & that you have a great Christmas & holiday season, and a very bright new year!

Now We Are Nine

It is 10/10/10! Velasquez Artistry's birthday! Yes, 9 years ago on 10/10/01, Velasquez Artistry officially began. Now going into our 10th year, we've got some great things in store, and some upcoming changes too. Stay tuned for news coming soon! In the meantime, I'm putting my nose back to the grindstone to finish up the last of the "Matching Mares," while trying not to become a bridezilla! (I *think* I'll manage both of those things!)

So- many, many thanks to all of you for a great nine years... I've great expectations for this, the 10th!

Collier Sweetheart

Hey, y'all!

I just thought I'd share a picture of "Collier Sweetheart," the Pour Horse Collier I painted for the Flying Heart Fundraiser! He is almost done- he still needs a little more glaze! Because of that and the tremendous success of the fundraiser, I've decided to wait until after BreyerFest to sell him. You'll hear more news here when that happens, but in the meantime, enjoy the pictures!

Somethings Sweet...

Okay! Here are the sneak peek pics for the upcoming Toot Sweet batch! Yes, I finally got around to taking and posting these- it has been a busy weekend (and Happy Father's Day to all- and a special shout out to my own dear dad!). There will be just 2 in this batch, but man, they are power-packed with details galore! There's a whole lot of fiddly stuff, hand painting, and the likes, in these two gals (plus both of them have cat-tracks!). These are pre-glaze in-progress pics, so the finished horses will look a little different. When will they be sold, I hear you asking? Why the plan is sometime Tuesday- tune into the Velasquez Artistry Yahoo Group for the official announcement!

Thanks folks, and have a great week!

I was saving my 100th post for something special, as I noticed that it was coming up. And what better thing to announce, than my engagement! Yes, my boyfriend, now fiancé, proposed to me last month, and I accepted. We plan to wed in January, here in California. I will be moving up to WA after the wedding, and I will be taking his name (Hude - rhymes with Jude, rude, food, etc.) so this means some changes for me, and for Velasquez Artistry (I am considering changing my business name). I will apprise y'all of the details on that, as soon as I figure it all out! But rest assured, whatever my business is called, you will still see the same level of quality artwork from the new (and improved) Adalee Hude!
