Self-Portrait (repost)

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

Crowded Swing Set

Japanese kids playing on a swing set.  RTH would have liked this one, but it took a lot of post-processing to bring out the image.  From the same visit that produced Small Crowd.

ADDED: JLH points out that KSR is on the right end of the swing set.  I had seen her there, but didn't believe it was actually her.

Comfort Suites End Table (sketch)

This was from the same collection that included the sketches from South America, so I'm guessing it was done in 2005, or 2006.
