A self-taught artist, Swan is best known for his comforting, warm landscapes which take up to 500 hours to complete. Typical of these is Blue Moon which, as with many of Swan's paintings, features houses and is highly detailed but could be criticised for an idealised, 'chocolate box' style.
Swan won the 1979 Saturday Evening Post Cover Contest, and his art is featured in several famous collections, including those of Johnson and Johnson, Malcolm Forbes, and the Vermont Council on the Arts. His paintings have also been featured in Yankee Magazine and Vermont Life Magazine.
