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

I found quite a few pictures of the internals of watches among RTH's early pictures from Japan.   Some were in someone's hand, and others were displayed alone.  I suspect he liked the juxtaposition of the watch and the hand here.  I'm going to guess this was taken in 1968 or so.

Courtyard Fountain

RTH built this courtyard and the fountain in the front yard of our house in Los Gatos in the early 60's.  The Mimosa I posted earlier was in one of the corners of this courtyard.

Canal Scene

This is a watercolor drawing done while RTH was in college.  I moved the signature, which is much further from the drawing in the original.  The image is about 9" x 11".
