Expressionism or Impressionism?

Hey Friends, Got a new painting to show you. Actually this is only the top half (it's 24x8) cuz I don't yet know enough about Photoshop to correct the color difference where the two scans meet! I know, I shouldn't tell the world what a Dolt I am but as Popeye says " I yam what I yam." My newer ones are even more colorful. Going through a stage, which I've done before. I've been reading William Herring's book " A Horse of a different Color" for about the 12th time. Maybe that is why I'm going nuts with the color. He is an artist from Texas and this book is illustrated in black & white drawings so I'm not sure where the color fits in.
Happy Trails.

I wish I could paint. Tried it today, and did not have the best turnout. Ever have one of those days?

I love this! Dragonflies are probably my favorite insects, they are just so much fun to watch. I laughed at the Popeye quote, hehe. That used to be one of my favorite cartoons.

Very nice, would love to see it as a whole. I use a digital camera instead of scanning ( I just crop out the background in photo editing software)Love your colors and you did a great job on the dragonfly
