Lori Woodward 's comment on Defining Hard, Soft and Lost Edges In Your Paintings

Some paintings have an "all over pattern" rather than a center of interest. Nancy often uses a "connect the darks" pattern to lead the eye around the painting, and she repeats color throughout the design.

My eye goes to the hard edges of the pink tulips on the right/middle area, but it might be different for others - this painting does not have one hardest edge, but several hard edges... probably should have picked a different painting.

I wanted to use a painting she did of a little girl in a dress knitting. That painting of Nancy's definitely has one hardest edge - the white line of the bottom of her skirt. Go to West Wind Fine Art: and look at Nancy's paintings there.

Her work is just amazing!
