Barn Charm

Many Ohio barns are painted with this bicentennial logo. Ohio bicentennial painter, Scott Hagan, sketched and painted each logo by hand. By Sept. 2002 the artist had completed his five year mission of painting the logo on at least one barn in each of the 88 counties.Linked to Tricia's Bluff Area Daily...and to Our World Tuesday...

This is a wonderful barn...what a job to paint the logo on at least one barn in each county. Wonder how long it took to paint each one?

I've seen a lot of these.
I like the stone foundation of this one and those wooden doors/windows.
Lovely shot Carol!
