#15 "Miner's Hat Restaurant" -Sheryl Hawkins
When I was growing up, we used to go to see my grandparents in Kellogg, Idaho almost every year. This little roadside restaurant- The Miner's Hat- was at the exit we took off of the highway. We thought it was the coolest thing, a giant hard hat with an equally giant miner's lamp. The restaurant closed, and it became a real estate office, but retained its unique shape.
I painted this watercolor from a vintage photo from about 1955. I love old photos and postcards, and definitely enjoyed painting this. It brought back a lot of childhood memories.
