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

Ivy at Table Edge

Drawing in ink of an ivy plant.  One of the works RTH did in college.  The paper is crinkled, so it was hard to get a clean scan.

Bamboo windscreen on sand dune

This style of bamboo fence was often used in Japan as a snow fence, but I don't remember seeing them at the beach.  In any case, it was clearly in need of maintenance.   Late 60s.

Exposed Tenement Building Face

I think this was taken in 1978 or so.  We're looking a the remaining building after the building that used to occupy the lot RTH shot from was demolished.  There were apparently some openings in the firewall between the buildings, and they've been covered up with plywood.
