Revelstoke Courthouse

This is the grand old courthouse at Revelstoke. I was quite charmed by all the older homes in Revelstoke. There are a few fancy ones but many are just nice, moderate homes that have survived the years.

I really liked the old courthouses in all the little burgs in Texas (and Illinois for that matter). There would be one big striking building with roads radiating out from it. I would love to be on site when they tear down some of the decripit ones, so much treasure to glean!!

I had a woman explain to me that you must be rich to be eccentric, otherwise your'e just plain crazy. It's not called Crazy Ravens Studio for nothing!!

Funny you should mention, Illinois. Living here, I am often charmed by the beauty of the courthouses in the small towns. We are always heading out for a ride to different areas and never fail to found these gorgeous little gems of architecture. Me? I'm going with eccentric. LOL This painting is lovely! Gorgeous colors!
