Hi Hat Coffee Shop – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Ink

Mandy, over at KCC suggested the Hi Hat Coffee Shop as a much loved Kansas City (actually Westwood Hills) building to paint.  Evidently, the owner of the shop watched that particular building forever, waiting for it to come up for sale or lease.  When it did, he snatched it up immediately!  I can see why.  What a fun little place.   I may go find them when I’m in KC

About Richard Bach

Richard Bach, the American pilot and author, became hugely successful with the publication of the slim novel Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a spiritual quest about a bird who loved to fly rather than seeing flight as a means to an end. He was born in Illinois on June 23, 1936, a descendant of composer Johann Sebastian Bach. He has been an Air Force Reserve pilot, a flight instructor, and a barnstormer; most of his books involve flight either directly or as a metaphor.

    Oooh, you know I love the bricks! So damn charming! I would definitely like to visit one of your whimsical little towns! (I’m sure the actual towns are very nice, but I mean your version haha). So many cute colorful animals, old-fashioned cars and adorable buildings all around. We’ll all be kind to each other and kick out the meanies! Now where do I sign up?
