Winter Light and a realization of expressionism.

Winter Light 20x16 oil
I consider myself a representational painter and an impressionist; but lately I have been feeling more like an expressionist.  I want to paint less representationally and more expressionistically.  I want to convey the feeling of the moment and not the pure representation of the moment which a camera can capture in a second.  I want the emotion of the place and time to come through and live in the painting.  I see this as a turning point in my work perhaps.  Here is a new painting that I feel captures the moment of the day without being naturalistically correct.
