Back to the square again

Or, how I spent my Christmas vacation (most of it and then some).

The next project was back to the 10/2 cotton in doubleweave, with the sprang worked in square areas in a checkerboard arrangement.  This time on a painted warp, with colors in contrasting tonal values to accentuate the curved shapes that appear.

The colors change along the warp from pastel warms with saturated cools to saturated warms with shades of the cool colors.  The weft is black crossing with all the cool darker colors, and a light grey crossing the warmer lighter colors.  It makes me think of a transition from spring colors to fall colors amd back again.
