Let us know when you decide. "Like" is such a personal word. So many things depend on what your tastes are, what you were trying to do and so on. If you were just playing, I like playing around with paint. It leads to things. You got a nice depth and weathery colors and such. It's not in one camp or the other that I can tell though - expressionist, impressionist, symbolist, etc. So if you're in no man's land, you have to come in with maybe a little more tipping of the scales one way or the other, even if it's none of the above and it's your own thing.

What it says to me is I get setting off in the long ships heading West from the north reaches. One of those Lief Erickson kind of scenes of discovery the impact and reality of what was to come hadn't yet solidified. Leif was probably looking beyond at this stage. But he was probably most satisfied that he had his crew and was now outbound at sea.

I particularly like that far land or ice mass.

lol its funny you should think of Leif Ericson..his first landing when he left Iceland, was the northern tip of newfoundland....maybe my painting is a subliminal hint from me to me that maybe I'm lost at sea and its time I went back to the big rock in the atlantic lolol
