#56 The Vacquero O., 20x24, Oil on Canvas, Framed, Signed by Dick Burg, Courtesy of Peter Burg.
A study drawing of Capistrano Depot that Dick did for a painting that ended up on a calender. It shows many details and the exstent an artist goes to prepare for larger works. This style is very reminiscent of his friend and artist Don Miles.
It was used as the front of the invitation for the Retrospective Show 1995.
