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

Backyard Mimosa

This was taken in the courtyard in front of our house in Los Gatos in the early 
1960s.  RTH built the planter and the fence/screen surrounding the courtyard.  
You can see his signature cast stone wall on the right side.

Shy Japanese Kids Pose

Another shot from the playground visit that produced other crowd scenes.  This was very characteristic of Japanese children at the time--you can see that they all want to be in the picture, while not wanting to be in front.

Horse Farm Fences

I'm not sure where this is.  It appears to be a horse farm, and I'd guess
 it belonged to friends.  Taken in or near Virginia in the 1990s.

ADDED 6/23/2011: I found a sketch that matches one of the photos
in this set.    It's captioned Fredricksberg Berry Plain.  1/12/96.
