O...is for Ohio

To celebrate Ohio's bicentennial year, barn painter Scott Hagen painted this mural on a barn in each of Ohio's eighty-eight counties.  I enjoy finding these paintings on different barns all around Ohio.  

More "O" photos are waiting to be seen at ABC Wednesday....

Only the very top is visible if you look hard enough.

I like the name barn painter. Is there really a profession call that name? He certainly did a very good job and you too, nice photo.

As I recall, there was a controversery over when Ohio became a state 1802 or 1803. OUTSTANDING nonetheless.

He did 88 barns? Whoa! That's a ton of paint. I like the idea though. How many of the 88 have you found so far?

Heavens, didn't he get bored with painting the same thing! What an undertaking! It's a nice cheerful image, though!

Happy 200th birthday to a great Midwestern state! I love old barns--what a clever and unique way to publicize this bicentennial.
