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

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.
