Mentor and Friend

Gerry Kortello, the local high school art teacher, paid me a visit today to check the progress on the sheep horn carving. He seemed genuinely appreciative of the work done and noted the difficult nature of carving with the horn's curve. He had a few positive suggestions regarding the composition, which I will incorporate into the sculpture.

I asked him if he would be my critic and mentor, and he replied that he would be my friend.
