I've posted this photo before , but it seemed a nice one to end with. I've come to the end of the material that I want to share he...
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

Cobbled Street with manhole cover
I think this was taken in Philadelphia or Providence around 1978. RTH was always interested in textures, and there are several jumbled together here.

Steaming Tea Kettle
This has to be one of RTH's favorites. I've seen more variations of it than any other. They're always formatted vertically as this one is. I have the negative now, and got the story from JLH. The photo was taken around 1956 while he was on assignment in Tokyo for the Navy. When he developed the film, he forgot that he had used a larger size of film than usual and didn't use enough of the developer. When the negatives came out, only this portion of the image was developed. Apparently he got the important part of the shot!
JLH and MSH have (different) copies. RTH had an enlargement hanging in his dressing room at Terra Uchi.

Manette Bridge, Bremerton, Washington
According to JLH:
This was painted while we lived in Bremerton, Washington, from July through November, 1955. This was the view from our third floor walkup apartment on Highland Street. It is the Manette Bridge, over a portion of the Puget Sound.She has it hanging in her apartment now.
