The big fireplace at the Public Library.
The joy of scouting places, finding treasures and having your art kit with you to sketch it on location is....priceless. I found this fireplace in the Public Library in downtown Joliet, Illinois. This building was built in 1903. This room survived the big fire of 1989. The fireplace is magnificent. The tiles under the big mirror have paintings of native Americans with tepees. My husband is looking at them in awe. During our stay we were offered a glass of lemonade. It's lemonade day just in case you don't know. Great find...and great lemonade.
