Hey watchers!

If you didn't know before, now you know that I am BACK! And I did post new art work! Go check it out and let me know what you think! I will be working on more art in the near future and I am already starting on a new portrait. I will however, take a different turn in who I draw. I realize when I draw people of a lower popularity rate that no one comments on the art, no matter how hard I worked on it. It's the content that people notice. So I will change once again the people that I draw. Stay tuned!

So It's been 5 years since I started drawing and probably since I started posting here on Deviant Art! YAY ME! I am very proud of myself...I feel I should be graduating, getting a gold medal or something. Ive never graduated from college, but this must be my lucky day!

I thank God for giving me a new gift I never knew I had or have developed over these years and I thank my family for all their support, even if at first they didn't really see 'Art' in my art. lol I know run-on sentence.

I am thankful to ALL of you artists and art lovers who have supported me with your sweet comments and shares, your tips and tricks, your encouraging words have sometimes made me smile all day. THANK YOU!

I will keep drawing...I havent lost the love for it yet!
Sometimes I lose inspiration, sometimes I wouldnt draw for months, but I am still going!
This last hiatus, i couldnt help because I had injured my hand. Yes, the one I draw with, so I was very sad for a while. I thought I would never get to come back. But with prayer and lots of exercising my hand, I get to draw again!
Keep viewing and commenting and I will be sure as God wills to keep posting my art!


God Bless you
Tessa

Hey guys, I have new art here. My latest is my "David Phelps Portrait". I took about two weeks to make it seeing I was being interrupted all the time and also because  I realized how much I hated drawing hair, but I love how it turned out either way. A new challenge hump I have climbed over! Please tell me what you think!David Phelps Portrait by blacknimproud

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 13, 2014, 6:38 AM


It's me again! Yes, I do have similar problems that I spoke of in my last deviant journal. No printer ink. Funds are low as I am sure they are everywhere, but seems im not as fast with art making as I used to be either, so to sell my art is grim. 
I was hoping to be back in view with an artpeice for black history month, would have been fitting, but as I said, I do not draw as much as I used to. 
I do need encouragement, I'm job hunting at the moment and trying to get my driver's license something i should have had a while back, but not everyone loves to drive you see. 
Hope to see you all soon again, don't give up on me now!

I hope you all my viewers are well. Just to let you know that I have submitted two new art pieces, the latest being a commission. Do let me know what you think! Don't just look at it! :)

Thank You!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 19, 2013, 8:24 PM


I would like to thank all those who favorite and watch my work! I can never be more grateful. Those of you who stuck with me from the beginning of my journey here on Deviant Art, thank you SO much! You mean a lot to me. I have no award to accept so I have to stop my speech here, lol.  However, those who COMMENT on my work and give me such honest-to-goodness feedback and critique...you have no idea, it has helped me progress so much in my work. That's why I ask for comments, so I can know how I am doing!

Keep it up as I will too!
More art to follow...

Selling My Art!

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 7, 2012, 6:42 PM
Hey guys!

I've had an online shop open for sometime now, where I sell my original artwork and then it hit me - Why not tell you all!
So now you have a chance to go to page on this wonderful site and buy my art! No prints, the real thing!

Just click here to go to my shop: www.etsy.com/shop/tgreenaway

I only have two pieces I'm selling right now at low prices. I will be adding even more in the future! Please support this venture, I'd really appreciate it.

Love you all!

New Camera, New Art

Thu Nov 8, 2012, 5:53 AM


Hey fellow watchers and artists,

Guess what? Yes! I got a new CAMERA finally! I have to tell you it's light weight and small and its a Nikkon. Last time I had a Kodak, and Im already trying to figure out how this one works. So since I got  a new camera, of course you all will be getting new art to view from me! I hope you like what you see and COMMENT! That means more to me than how many views a piece gets.

Well, see you soon, and hopefully with new art!


Blessings,
Tessa

How do I add pictures?

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 15, 2012, 9:24 AM
Hey guys,

I've not gone anywhere, just saving for a camera so i can get my art back on board for your viewing pleasure!

I have a question though....I do not know how you guys get pictures IN your JOURNALS. You feature other artists and such in a journal entry and I don't know how to do that. can someone please tell me? I would very much appreciate it!

Thanks!
Tessa

Excited!

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 22, 2012, 12:05 PM
I am indeed excited about posting new artworks here in the future for you guys! I appreciate all the comments (paid for or not) lol. For those who watch me and faithfully comment, I commend you and have to tell you, you guys keep me around. It's so easy to get discouraged in this area of creativity if no one pays any mind to your hard work. So thank YOU!

I'm am getting closer to getting new printer ink and art material to get started on new workings! YES, money is THAT scarce for my family and I. Most of it goes to food and bills. So no time for extra/nice things like art. But it's coming full circle, and I hope to pump out some even better work for those watchers of mine! So don't fall away and go watch someone else and comment elsewhere. Have patience and my new art you will be viewing soon!

Peace and Love to all
Tessa

NEW ART!

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 13, 2012, 2:54 PM


Hey deviants!

I was finally able to get a better picture of my latest art piece - Nature's Eve. Check it out and comment below the picture! I'm working on getting a camera and more artwork for you guys to view! Thank you for your patience!

About to Expire!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 9, 2012, 10:53 AM
Hey there friends,

AN EMERGENCY! My premium membership is about to expire! So if you come to my page and it looks all plain and wrong, then you know why. I do not have funds to re-new it right now. Just letting you guys know, I haven't gone anywhere!


Love you all!
Tessa

So I signed up to an art website called ETSY where everything there is handmade by all sorts of artists. And yesterday someone bought one of my art works! I'm so happy! I see a future business in this! lol

It's only 5  by 5 inches but I thought it was great. I can't wait to actually sell my portraits!

The drawing was "Color in Your Eye" done with charcoal and prisma colors

My Camera Stopped working!!

Journal Entry: Mon May 21, 2012, 3:45 PM


Hey guys,
I know it's been  a while since I posted anything new reffering to portraits and you all are getting art weary. lol But really All I'm waiting on is money enough to gain some new material...like

Printer Ink
Paper
and...
A CAMERA!
OUCH! That will definitely hurt my wallet.
Yes guys, my camera's shutter just stopped working. I've had it for a good year and half after my brother owned it so I'm thankful for the time we shared. *sniff*
But of course this all takes money and saving takes time, so to all my watchers, I'm asking for your patience. I AM working on new pieces, this does  not stop my art flow at all. Just that I want you guys to get something of good quality to display. I know you all understand. Till then...

Happy Drawing, Painting or whatever art it is you do!

Tessa

Commissions Are Open!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 2, 2012, 7:51 AM


Hey all, I just wanted to pop in and say Hi. Just to remind you once again, COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN. So feel free to contact me if you are interested. I also have to say I am having so much fun with Pastels! Finally a medium I can get my fingers in! lol it's messy, fun and can be still worth working with in the end. I'm still learning about the different tooth in certain papers and exploring new options for papers, so I can't say I have a favorite paper to work with as yet, but SO FAR I love bristol/Strathmore series and it has worked well for me. I would like to put out more charcoal pieces, yet another medium I have yet to further explore. I tend to mix charcoal with other media but I want to bring out a solo piece for now. haha
As for all the comments, guys I appreciate these more than views, more than clicks, more than anything else! This alters my approach to art and how I draw in the future. So keep 'em coming okay? Those who do not comment, no better time to start than right now! Don't just stare and glare, say something!

Love you all
Peace
Tessa
