Edges Edges Edges !!! I finally get it...

Well I've been away for a while waiting for my hubby to fix the computer problems. In the meantime I got a lot of painting done.

During this hemit like existance in my studio I finally felt something click in my brain regarding the idea of paying careful attention to edges. My art instructors for years have been telling this to we students and while I thought I knew what they were talking about I wasn't really getting it. One of them said "get the edges right, the interiors not as crucial. What to look for where an edge occurs is crisp or soft edges, color relationships, and value relationships. I'm sure there is much more but this is as far as I've gotten so far
