thinking about sharp vs soft and my show

I apologize for my absence. I have been so busy getting ready for my upcoming show at the Waverly Street Gallery.  It gets installed tomorrow evening and opens to the public on Tuesday. The reception is Friday the 11th- 6-9PM. Please come if you can.
I thought I would  take this opportunity to post this painting- River Evening. It seems to be one of my favorites from this show. Why I wonder?
I think it is the use of a soft less focused space and the rawness of this pastel combines to create a deeper feeling. You see the drips, spills and fact I think they make the painting stronger. More to the concept.
What do you think?

Gorgeous painting, Loriann, and I like the drips too! They add a little something extra - like we're viewing it through a veil. Your show will be so beautiful and I wish I could be there. Please take photos!
