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

Rusty Train Wheel

A stark closeup of corroding heavy equipment. I think this was taken in Japan in the mid-1960s.
Also see this Train Wheel, which feels less start, but is probably from the same expedition.

The Learning Curve-Still

JLS found another trove of art a short while ago. I'm going to start this series with a cartoon RTH apparently did for a Navy newsletter called "The Learning Curve". I'm guessing these were done while we were in Japan, in the mid-60s. There are six of these, and the style  is consistent across them. The only other cartoons that I'm aware of that he did were for family Christmas cards.
