The nature of the day (24 degrees, clear) made the painting. What I mean is this painting done with frozen water, upon heat from my car to dry it,easily became very abstract. The edges were gone on the underpainting, thus freeing me from the tyranny of realism. The play of the action between the lines becomes easier.
Edges tell your eyes where to look...make the path. The sharper/more contrast the edge the more it demands your eye to look there first.
