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

An oil painting.  This one reminds me of navy ships on the horizon, but you might see something very different.  MSH has this one.   This one is fairly large; I remember it as about 3' x 4'.
