|Jan Swan (www.zhibit.org/janswan)|
I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When I was first involved with Paws For Charity, the Nova Scotia shelter was not the charity the book supported. Nevertheless, I am happy to contribute to any organization that helps animals, no matter where it is located.
Tell us about one of your favorite photo shoots/painting commissions?
I had a large painting of horses commissioned by a family in Canada. They had seen my miniature paintings on ETSY and commissioned me to do a large version.
Do you ever find yourself in a creative dry spell? What do you do to get yourself inspired?
I have been in an artistic dry spell this year. Sometimes other aspects of life demand all ones attention and energy, and it has been that kind of year for me. When this happens, I just wait it out, knowing that my muse will return when I'm ready.
Do you have any creative mentors?
Thanks Jan....for your continued support in this project!
