Visiting Dick’s Wife

Dick read all of the students packets from this chair.

In the October 05 residency I went to visit Ruth, Dick’s wife, to tell her about the sculpture.  My instructor Charlotte Hastings came with me. While there I took this photograph.

 I was told that this is the chair where Dick corrected the packets for the ADP program.  To me this chair is as much a photograph and a part of Dick as a picture of his face. 

This is the beginning of searching for the spirit of Dick Hathaway.

While there, Charlotte told Ruth about the sculpture.  I held Ruth’s hand and promised I would try to do him justice.  I think I heard her say, “I know.”  Her eyes twinkled, we both cried.
