Vern Scharf Paintings from Santa Cruz, California

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

Love's like that. Every thing seems calm, then BAM! you're it. Nothing you can do but take a deep breath and hope you don't get the wind knocked out of you. Sure, it can be dangerous, but people have been wading right back in for as long as time itself. This Ode to the Big Wave Theory of Love is painted on all panels, with fine French acrylics over a diminutive 4 by 4 inch stretched gallery wrap canvas by local Santa Cruz artguy Vern Scharf. It's coated with layers of acrylic varnish so it's portable art that can travel anywhere, set on a shelf, or hang on a tiny nail.

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...
