Another not-usual point of view, looks great... composition and color contrast give a graphic design feeling on it

Nice piece!
I was unfamiliar with Staprans until now, but have long been attracted to the Bay Area School stuff. Congrats also on the Raymar recognition.

Great work, I like the simplification of the water.
The truth is I do not know if it is oil or acrylic.

thank you all...

I'm happy that this experiment went over. ;-) I'm definitely going through a transition phase. I find myself feeling like that paintings I did 6 months ago were painted by somebody else. Expressionism is really having an impact over technique. The next phase is finding a clearer voice in subject. The biggest thing is thinking more being open to artists and subjects I dismissed in the past because I didn't take the time to find subtle meaning.
