Summer Art Sale- Part II

Hello again! The sale is all up now. There are a couple of items left from yesterday, with a bunch of new items today. You can see it all at this link:

Thanks to everyone for your support, kind words, and for your purchases! It is exciting to play with new media and go off on tangents every once in awhile... Perhaps I'll have to do this again someday! Till then, it's back to the horses- great things are on the way, and great ideas are being formed.... That's all for now- don't forget to post a comment on yesterday's give-away post if you want a chance at winning a drawing!

Art Sale Give-Away!

It's noon now... gotta keep moving! But first, a little something fun... It's pretty simple, but I hope you'll like it. Up for grabs, is a pen & prismacolor drawing on 9 x 12 art paper, entitled Spotted! Just a wee spotty mouse, scampering across the page, looking up at you. There will be a drawing for this drawing (hee!) on Saturday, July 26th at 6 p.m., PST for the readers of this blog. To enter, just post a comment in the comment section of this post. A winner will be drawn at random for the artwork. I will contact the winner, and mail them the art via USPS. Okay! That's all! Good luck & have fun!

Summer Art Sale- Part 1

Hiya folks! Well, despite going to bed late & getting up early, it doesn't quite look like I'm going to make my exact deadline of noon today to start the sale, but hopefully, it won't be too much later! I always forget just how long it takes to edit photos and scans. Anywho, all my pictures are ready, so it is just a matter of posting them here & on my website. The sale will officially begin when I have the items up on my website, along with their prices- click the link below to check on the status:

But, since you were kind enough to check in here, you'll get to see what's for sale today first! That, and check out the give-away which I will be posting about momentarily. Without further ado, I present today's offerings (details and more detailed pictures will be up on my website!):

"St. Francis Basilica", OF Ornament ~ 2005

"Pine Nuts!"

That's all for now! Thanks!

Summer Art Sale

Howdy again! I've got more fun for you today! Seeing as it is taking me a bit of time to complete the OF Jitterbug run, I've been working overtime to make a few things to sell so I might have some sort of income while I'm busy producing my American Shetland pony. That said, next week, Velasquez Artistry is having a Summer Art Sale! It will be a cheery combo of ceramic and other media pieces; of horses and other animals (and plants!). I've posted a preview of some of the pieces in progress. The exact date of the start of the sale will be announced in my yahoo group, but I am aiming for no later than next Friday. I hope to keep the pieces moderately priced, and there will even be a give-away here on the blog, so stay tuned!

OF Jitterbug Teaser

Hi Folks!

Long time, no blog! It's been a month already... gotta work on that! Anyhow, I thought I would post a little teaser for the OF color, for the 20 piece Jitterbug run. Just a little something to hopefully get you excited... I've been working hard on these ponies- he's not the easiest piece to clean- but thankfully, I am not yet at the point where I am working on them in my dreams (that's when I know it's really getting to me!). Here's a picture of one of my shelves that I took a couple of weeks ago- you can see them all lined up, waiting for a final sanding & firing:
I plan on finishing all of the pieces of this run before I offer them for sale. I am thinking a good time to release the run will be either late August or early September. Since it is a small run, I may do a combo of first come, first serve & lottery format. I will let you know! In the meantime, enjoy this preview... I may post another bit of him in a couple of weeks!
