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

State Historical Museum, Moscow

The Red building with white cupolas is the State Historical Museum.  The green steeples are a corner of the Kremlin wall.  We're looking across the northern edge of Red Square.  This is all from handing the photo to image search in images.google.com and following various traces around the web.  RTH was in Moscow in August of 1995.

Potting plants

Flower vendor potting plants.  I'm guessing this was taken at the same bonsai flower show I've posted other photos from before.  I'm not sure where or when the show was.  JLH says it could have been from a trip they took to China in 2003 or so.  They looked at bonsai one day while wasting time waiting for the ship on their Yangtze river cruise.

Small Crowd (repost)

I posted a photo of an enlargement of this image last September, but I have
the negative now, and can present a better image.  JLH has the enlargement 
(54" x 33"), which was at Terra Uchi for many years, in her entryway.
