12×16″ mixed media: acrylic, screen, yarn, thread on canvas

This is not technically a “daily”—it’s been in the works for years in one form or another. But I added some paint today that I hope finishes it. Yet to be determined, of course.

This began its life (as far as I can remember it) as a sort of study for a larger painting. I was experimenting with using screen material for texture but also as a “loom” structure for weaving, so this has a little bit of everything.

After the experimenting was done, it went through a couple of different iterations (at least), until more recently I focused on and smoothed out (somewhat) the blues and purples and turquoises and arrived here.
