losing my edges

I went back to read the section on edges in Richard's Schmid's book Alla Prima. Finally the lightbulb clicked on--that losing edges is the way to make an item blend with its background, instead of being a cut-out on top.

So I'm practicing. It's difficult to not put down what I see (edges), or to go back and blur them, after working so long to be accurate.
