Clam Shell by Kristine Kainer

Oil on Canvas Panel

This clam shell painting is a birthday gift for my amazing father, Lt. Col. Peter G. Scharf, USMC-Ret.  I spent my childhood along the Eastern Seaboard, from North Carolina to Maine.  As a result of our proximity to the Atlantic, shellfish was commonplace in our home.  I fondly remember Dad leaning over the sink, shucking clams and slurping out the delicious meat and juices--as a snack.

Dad eventually taught me how to eat them.  At first, he paid me for each one I managed to "stomach."  After the first or second one though, I quickly realized how delicious they were!  I made some decent money that day....  Happy Birthday, Dad!
