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

Stone Lantern under leafy Tree

Yet another Stone Lantern.

Italian Square (sketch)

This is a photo of a (signed) sketch.  It looks like an Italian square to me.  I don't have a copy of the sketch, but the photo seems like it was taken around 1960.  I'm not sure where RTH would have been traveling at that time.  It's possible that it was drawn from a photo.

Mt Fuji from Hayama

A view of Mount Fuji as seen from the house where we lived in Hayama.  I recognize the spire at the bottom as part of the Hayama Marina (where we lived for a few months when we first arrived in Japan.)  I think we lived in Hayama in 1968.

Hasselblad (sketch)

Sketch of a Hasselblad camera.  Undated, but it's definitely one of his earlier works from college or around that time.

Ships at Sea

Abstract of ships at sea.  This was RTH's first oil painting done with a palette knife.  It represents "a feeling he had while on watch on the ship at sea in early morning."  The original is 3' x 4'.  I have it hanging in my living room.   This one is pretty popular: RWH has an almost-full-size copy on display, and KSR has a smaller copy up as well.

Reflections on the side of a glass building.  I always thought this photo had been taking in New York City on a trip to visit the UN, but it's collected with a group of photos from Japan's Expo 70, so that's where I now think it was taken.
