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

Tule Field

Oil painting called "Tule Fields" in my notes, though I don't know where I found the name.  JLHS says RTH had been taking a class in Geology before he painted this.  He was very interested in the land layers and had been on several field trips out in the country.    I have this painting.  It's 48" x 58".
