Barn Charm: #58 The barn artist


I have seen this from Interstate 70 traveling west to my son's.
I have past it for YEARS.
Finally I got close to it last Sunday
when we were out scoping a home on 10 acres that was for sale.
(My previous post shows what we discovered.)

I knew this was painted by our local 'celebrity'---the young man
who learned from the man who painted hundreds of barns
with tobacco logos and passed his legacy on to a willing apprentice.

This is a barn, not a house although it is no longer used for animals and such.
The interstate is down to the right.



I looked up the website and lo and behold found him.
Check it out---it's WONDERFUL!
He has his portfolio and a bit of his history and well, it's really cool!

This is an example of his centennial painting which he explains on his blog.
I have featured this barn before.
Go on over to Scott Hagan's site.

Then click below for more barn views from Tricia's place.

  3. Love it!!! I thought about painting a big mural on the back of my house. One big wall has no windows and would be perfect for something like that....maybe a field of bluebonnets. I wish I was talented like that. Maybe if they offered paint by number murals that you could place on your wall then fill in....lol. I really do love this! My hubby and I ride around taking pictures of old barns and I took one that has a Texas flag for the roof. It really sticks out when you're driving in the country. I bet you can even see it when you fly over in a plane! I have tried to link up to barn charm, but maybe my Norton security is keeping me from it because each time I try, it just freezes and never brings anything up when I click to bring up my picture onto her link. Oh, well. Thanks for the beautiful words this morning on my blog. You are such a sweet person!

  7. Thank you, Beth, for your comment about my stolen camera... & I esp like what you said about coming upon the barn on a walk & feeling instantly at peace surrounded by God's beauty in nature... I've been wanting to shoot that old barn for a couple years, now, & just kept forgetting to stop, but the fall colors made me pay more attention that day & I finally remembered... so, it was definitely a delight!

    Thank you, again, & God bless =)
