Red Country Barn In Fog

Red Country Barn in Fog Photography Print - One never knows how long the building will be around. It is becoming more evident to me as I age. A building or barn that was there one year ago, isn't today. Sad really, because the first settlers to our country built them. They are our history. They are our stories. The contrasting red country barn caught my attention in the light fog.

Sweet Fields Barn

Sweet fields barn- Fine Art Photography Print

Sweet Fields Barn

Sweet Fields barn. Almost 100 years of rain, sleet, snow and baking summer sun have taken it’s toll on this Wisconsin structure. Yet, she stands tall and strong in the sweet fields she calls home. Affirming her commitment to the land.

The current owner has appreciation and admiration to preserve this classic style barn. Staying true to her original framework and even going as far as using the white washed paint technique from the period, when it time came to restore her timeless beauty.

The Red Barn Made Me Do It

The Red Barn Made Me Do It - I pulled off on the side of a county road to take a picture of this barn in Brown County, WI. As I was grabbing my camera out of the back of my car an officer stopped and asked if I needed help. It was a nice gesture.

The Red Barn Made Me Do It

No Officer – The Barn Made Me

I pulled off on the side of a county road to take a picture of this barn in Brown County, WI. The red barn stuck out beautiful against the snow.

As I was grabbing my camera out of the back of my car an officer stopped and asked if I needed help. It was a nice gesture.

Why Were Barns Painted Red?

He asked me if I knew why most barns were painted red. I did, but really wanted to hear his version. Pretty much the same as I had heard.

 

Barns were painted by using linseed oil long ago. That gave them a reddish orange look. Some farmers added rust to the linseed oil because it helped to kill algae and prevent it from growing on their structures.

About This Print

An old barn in early autumn colors. Absolutely love the architecture of this wooden barn. The rooftop dormers are phenomenal.

Wise Quote

“Criticism is an alluring substitute for creation, because tearing things down, unlike building them up, really is as easy as falling off a stump. It’s blissfully simple to strike a savvy, sophisticated pose by attacking someone else’s creations, but the old adage is right: Any fool can burn down a barn. Building one is something else again.”

– Martha Beck

Stride Away - Dotted throughout the country side in the Midwest are barns donning beautiful hand painted barn quilts. What is a barn quilt? Well, it isn't a full size quilt. It is generally a single quilt block pattern painted onto a piece of wood that measures 8 feet. After they are painted they are hung on exteriors of barns and outside structures. Barn quilt patterns vary. The majority are comprised of simple geometric shapes, like squares, rectangles and triangles. Some are creative. Telling a story. They honor your heritage.
