Progress: No. 19 and No. 20

Yesterday someone asked me why I work on wood. Well this person literally asked, "What's the deal with the paint on the board?" Ignoring my compulsion to make that question grammatically correct, I surmised what he was asking. I really enjoy the tangible quality of this hard surface. I love the texture and the color. Canvas when pulled across stretcher bars has flex to it, making it feel delicate. Also I purchase remnants from a local lumber store, where many of the small pieces I take would have been discarded anyway.
