"My impressionist flower paintings give me the opportunity to explore color and step outside of my comfort zone by being bold with my paint application. The strong and vibrant colors in my work is a reflection of positivity. My process begins by distorting photographs of flowers just enough to still maintain their floral essence. Layers upon layers of acrylic, oil pastels, and spray paint are applied until the surface takes on a life of its own."—Steve Javiel
