In memory of Dick Hibbert (1933-2010), I am posting selections from his art. He painted in oil, was an avid photographer, did watercolors, and sketched in pencil, ink, and charcoal.   You can send me email by addressing it to my first name at mydruthers.com. --Chris

Untitled Painting

This is an oil painting, probably about 2 foot on a side.   I've always thought of this as an aerial view of a small town with a river.  Notice the three bridges.  But it's hard to explain the way the river dissipates at its ends, so your interpretation is just as valid.
