    • Thanks so much. There is nothing I am doing that you can not start doing though so dont give up! I am most certainly not living off of MY art- I lose money everyday with MY own art business most likely. But I am however just scraping by with the money I make at my creative-based career, which is a task all on it’s own but good enough for me right now. ALOT of hard work, and sometimes I am still moving backwards but I wouldnt trade my creative job for a standard job like a bartender or anything again and I wont stop trying to improve my own art business and you shouldnt either! Take care and stay creative

  1. An artist who digs nature and the environment? Oh, yeah. Thank you so much for liking my blogs Miss Jacklyn. As you know, positive feedback is always so much appreciated. Ontario? One of my idols, Neil Young, is from there. He recently stirred up some stuff with his stand on the Oil Sands. Love it. I’ll be visiting often and thanks again.

  2. Hey thanks for following my blog! Great works here I especially like your prints! Eye catching, if you have time would you mind liking my facebook page also on wordpress blog if you wish 🙂 Again thanks for stopping by my blog!

    • Thanks so much! Printmaking is such a tough love artform for me. I love it somedays and I despise it other days. Nevertheless you never cease to get interesting and spontaneous results, and never stop learning through the processes. I will stop by your blog again soon and hope you do the same!
      Take care! 🙂

  3. Thank you for liking “Life Form 52E” and “Summer Summoning.” I enjoyed visiting your blog and looking at the lively patterns and textures in your artwork. I hope you have the best of luck with all of your creative endeavors. 🙂

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog toooooo! You’re very active! I lived in Toronto for a few years – the snowy cold of the Canadian Tropics was too much for me though, and I headed far west & south. I enjoy your art, and wild eyes! Keep having fun.

    • Thanks for the comment! I try to stay active in the outdoors and active within my own artistic career….but often staying active at WORK prevails above the rest. Dam work…cant live with it, cant live without it. AHA

      Its very interesting to hear that you lived in Toronto for a bit. I find because I was born in Ontario I have developed a thicker skin for the climate changes but the older I get, the harder it is to cope with the extremes. Summer is great no matter how hot it gets, but Winter ….I am starting to question AHA

      I would love to travel more, maybe I will get to live in another country one day….

      Take care

  6. Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog! While I am not a visual artist, I love art and writing about it – I guess this is one of my creative outlets. Your work around the essence of animal eyes looks particularly interesting, hopefully you will post pics up come the time of their completion. I am new to the blogsphere and am yet to write an About Me section! So please come and check my blog out again sometime soon. Cheers

    • Writing about art is as great of a passion to have as the creation of the art itself. Thanks for the comment on my animal eyes series. The completed five paintings have been posted into the “Painting” Section of my artworks menu. Check them out if you want! I am quite new to this blogging world aswell but find myself enjoying seeing and talking about art more and more. Keep posted 😀

  9. Hi Jacklyn, thank you for popping in to my blog the other day. Only now had time to really check out your site. its wonderful, I especially love your ‘wild eyes’ series. Your versatility is awesome. I’m so looking forward to your future work. 🙂 -C

  10. Thanks! I have lived in Oakville for 3 years now for college and it is a nice place. I was born in Brampton, which was not a lovely place at all, and grew up in Caledon where my parents still live which is the most beautiful place! I am an outdoors and country house lover but also crave the city hype and will be living in Toronto hopefully soon to expand my career. Im glad I can still escape to my parents house in the country though. Nothing beats the fresh air and scenery. Keep checking back for constant life and artwork updates 🙂
