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

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 here. It's possible I'll find more pieces that are worthy of the collection, and if so, I will add them.

This marks the end of my regular posting. RTH always told his photography students that the secret to taking great photos was "you throw enough mud at the wall, and some of it will stick." He got a lot to stick, but there was a lot to sort through. I've enjoyed going back through all of his art. I hope you liked it too.
