All the wonderful people I have met through blogging. WP is such a great community.  I have met so many really creative artists through WP all over the world.  And they are all so supportive of me and my art.  Truly, an amazing community. ❤

8. Who is your favorite character in a novel or film and why do you like him/her so much?
Daine from the The Immortal Series books by Tamora Pierce.  They are actually written for the teen market, but I love all of her books.  I fell in love with them when my daughter ordered one from scholastic in grade school.  I read it to make sure it was age appropriate. I especially love the character Daine as she has the power to talk to and heal animals.  She can even shift her shape and become an animal. Way cool…

9. What one piece of advice would you give your younger self?
Spend a few minutes every day with YOUR art.  I know I was busy with life and I had a fabulous portrait photography career, but I wish I had spent more time creating art for myself on my terms. It brings me such joy now that I do it all the time.

10. Which Disney Fairy do you think resembles you the most in personality?
FAWN.  A rough and tumble tomboy.  Yep, that’s me.  Plus her favorite treat is melted acorn butter on anything.  I love my Trader Joe’s almond butter on just about anything. Seriously, don’t get between me and my almond butter! 🙂

  1. Congrats on the nomination! 😀
    Daine is one of my most favorite characters as well, she and Numair are just so wonderful together (And Kitten, Cloud, Zek, and the wolves)!!! But I also love the Kel and Alanna books as well, Tamora Pierce is just a genius really 😀

  2. Tara, I am so glad to hear you are a Tamora Pierce fan, too. And Yes, I love Kel and Alanna. I photographed my daughter when she was 11 all dressed up as Alanna with a sword. It was her favorite book at the time. I also love her characters from her circle open books Tris, Sandy, Daja, and Briar. Hmmm… I’m going to have to check to see if she has a new book out. 🙂

  3. That’s just awesome 😀 I’ve been a fan of hers for a good ten years now, though I haven’t read her Circle Open books. I just love her writing but I admit I wasn’t as fond of Aly’s books (Alanna’s daughter) though I did LOVE Nawat, the crow/man from that series 😀

  4. Congrats, Janelle and you are so deserving! I want to thank you for nominating me, but unfortunately I don’t do awards…mainly because I just don’t have the time to follow through and I always feel bad. But thank you so much for thinking of me, it really means a lot!
