Topic tags/keywords: arts and crafts old barns barns artwork

Many great pictures, paintings, photos or sketches etc. use old barns as subjects. I thought this forum would be a chance to bring many of those old barns together for the Jocks interested in artwork or just the look & memories associated with these grand old structures.
Here’s one to start off with.

Well this old barn is my own. It is our wood shed, built by my husbands grandfather in the 40’s by what we understand. I have a little garden in front of it in the summer, and throughout the years more and more “stuff” has been nailed on the front.It is in desperate need of a new door and we have decided to do that this summer, but we are looking to find an old door in halfway decent condition instead of putting a new one on such an old outbuilding.

My uncle Alvin and his barn in south Alabama ca.1968.

This is where i first learned you couldn’t use an electric fence as a rest for aiming a Daisy bb gun.

Barn at my Grandparents farm in 1985. It has since been torn down by new owner.

Their farm house in about 1944. The new owners built a new house.

Not for rent Keith. up for sale. Do you want to buy it?. LOL
Allison, why rip that old barn down?. It’s a definite treasure. I like the idea of all the tools on the outside, very convenient.
Dick, thats a great old barn, too bad it no longer exists.

No Grumpy, We are not going to tear it down, just get a new door. The stuff on the outside is stuff that we found (and my husband previous to me marrying him) laying around this property and also you find this kind of stuff laying around the woods out here. Especially the axe heads, maul heads etc.

That’s nice, I suppose if you have plenty of axe heads lying around, and don’t want or need one…But as somebody who doesn’t have an axe, and can’t spend the money, I have to admit it bugs me to see a bunch of vintage axe heads rusting away on the side of a barn. I’m not saying this to be offensive or grating, or to suggest you should take anything off your barn. Just I wish I had a decent felling axe right now, and I wish you needed to clean and take care of all those nice ones on your wall. Or got interested in axe history, which is mildly interesting.
