Melissa and Peter Burg
Melissa and I were eleven months apart in age. She was the older and bye far the more beautiful.
My father used us as cheap models. I think he captured a tender pose and excellent rendition of Melissa. I, on the other hand, felt I looked a bit sporty in my tennis sweater. These two were done in the early sixties. The baby fat in Melissa’s cheeks would set her age at around seven or eight. They are signed “Burg” which would also date them at that period.
