A Lesson in Edges - for me

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to see a collection of Richard Schmid's work in a private home. I was fascinated with his edges...or lack of them. The only hard edge I can find in each piece was around the focal point.

Since seeing Schmid's work up close & personal, I have been more aware of edges. My purpose for painting this piece, "Wait & Watch", was to make a concentrated effort to keep most of my edges soft.

This is an 8 x 10 oil - unfinished.
