Vern Scharf Paintings from Santa Cruz, California

Artist directory :: Vern Scharf Paintings from Santa Cruz, California

Sometimes a guy has to take a day off. There are birds to watch, flies and spiders to be dispatched, watching for dogs, the fish tank to patrol, the tissue to unwind in the bath, and those towels are back up on their holders, they must come down. And that patch of warm sunlight to be enjoyed for a quick nap. In this cat's dream, he's cruised to Capitola and is sitting in the sun on a vintage canvas and birch beach chair with a cold Tequila Sunrise, decorated with a bamboo umbrella. This lucky cat's dream was captured in Genuine Kitty-Vision© with finest French acrylics over a 4 by 4 inch gallery wrap canvas by local art guy and former cat herder, Vern Scharf. Well protected with several coats of acrylic varnish to allow handling and a long and happy nine lives.

After graduating, I got a job in a big ad agency coming up with, and drawing storyboards on how to sell cat food. A Walter Foster Learn To Draw Book taught me how to draw cats after I got the job (two ice cream cones on top of a baseball to start). I like working on smaller canvases because they take up less...
