The concept of beauty, as it principally applies to women, is Deborah Paswaters' signature image. Throughout the years, she has evolved a slightly imperfect Venus figure, a gossamer siren in a long flowing gown that Paswaters places in intriguing architectural settings--painted environments or real wood cabinets, doors, stain glass windows, or carved into clay, often with a large flower that echoes female loveliness.
That morning, I submitted myself as a model to Deborah Paswaters, the Laguna Beach artist who paints live people near the festival's front entrance. As the artist circled the podium and dolloped colors around my body, a father and daughter passed by and stopped to gawk.
To me, as a true creative, every minute life experience, emotion, insight, and dream coalesce together in a moment of a brush stroke. The mystery and surprise of the creative journey flows onto canvas and takes random unpredictable turns. Inspiration is my fuel source.
