Radical Portraits

For the most part Dick Burg was a conservative man. Rarely prone to extremes. His classification as far as style would be mostly realism and post-impressionism. That also would include stylized figure and a nostalgic interpretation regarding the architectural depiction of buildings such as barns and houses. The title, ”Twentieth Century California Painter focusing on composition and color theory would suit him well.
Here is one of the more radical portraits the I have come across.
