A friend from California alerted me that one of my fathers paintings was up for bid on ebay. After a quick search I located it. A desert wash scene somewhere in Indio or Palm Desert, California. Dick often ventured to the desert to paint and occasionally I would accompany him. Oil and canvass, 26x32 including frame.
This study was discovered amongst my sister, Melissa's early works.The painting was fashioned into a folder to hold her works. Notice small holes on the left side. This sassy barmaid or entertainer has been hidden for years. My father was extremely handy and helpful. He assisted my sister in her studies of art and painting with advice and in practical matter such as transporting artwork. Oil on cardboard canvass, 24X30, Courtesy of Peter Edward Burg.
