Some artists work very quickly, almost as if they feel the urge to create will leave them if they don't work fast. Others view creation as a way to relax, slow down and revive themselves a bit. Rob Wilds recently met a Nashville woodcarver who definitely fits into the second group. Ernest Sherill uses his artistic ability to create beautiful works...but also to decompress from the stresses of the day.
