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 --Chris

small crowd (untitled photo)

This photo was displayed in the entryway at Terra Uchi for many years, and is now in the entry of JLH's apartment.  It's quite large at 54" x 33".

This was taken at one of the top five parks in Japan around 1969.  We had been in the park for several hours and RTH was trying to get photos of these kids playing on the equipment.  The teachers kept telling the kids "Don't stare at the foreigners."  Finally RTH made a big production of putting away his camera gear but kept the camera around his neck under his coat.  As we left they all ran down the path to wave goodbye...
