Red Barn

I definately have a thing for barns. I guess it has something to do with growing up near my grandparents farm and living in rural Kentucky.
My Grandfather always kept his barns stained black. I always thought that red barns had sort of a nostalgia to them and those were my favorites as a kid. Now it seems that most folks put up pole barns with siding. It's always a treat for me to see an old wood barn in any color still standing.

  1. very nicely done. I, too, like red barns

  2. Thank you!! When you're a kid, it seems like all of the childrens books make the barns red. Maybe that impacted me as a child too!
