Vern Scharf Paintings from Santa Cruz, California

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

The mighty corn dog stands firm against the oncoming sea on a beautiful day on Monterey Bay. It’s not a complete summer without the yearly Corn Dog. Nothing like ‘em. Even if you don’t eat them, it’s fun to watch others try. From the ocean breeze blowing the napkins away to dealing with the sudden gush of mustard from those push down dispensers, it has “comedy” written all over it. Painted with finest French acrylics as part of local artguy Vern Scharf’s “Dangerous Cuisine” Series, on a 4 by 4 inch, 8 ounce, gallery wrap canvas. Sealed with multiple coats of glossy varnish to keep this dog delicious for 100 summers to come.

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...
