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

Abstract Painting (monkey)

This is one of RTH's abstracts.  He didn't have any particular image in mind.  He didn't 
sign it, so it doesn't have a preferred orientation.  My siblings and I like it in this orientation.  
We see a monkey, a rhinoserous, a pack of dogs, and more.  Currently at MSH's house.  24" x 24"

Straw House (photo)

I don't know what the story is behind this picture.  It seems to be on temple grounds, but I can't tell why they put up a building of straw.
