This is a recent oil painting. My empasis is on soft edges. I am pleased with the effect this gives to the painting. I believe that lost and found edges lend a slight emotional feeling to a painting, perhaps this is a subliminal bit of mystery? Edgar Whitney (wbo I studied with many times) would have said it is part of the 'entertainment' in the painting - (never go far without changing something - an edge, a value, a color,a texture). His well known saying: "We are not 'artists', we are entertainers!"
