Oddly enough, I got hooked on old barns and sheds when I lived in the Altanta area. The suburban setting I lived in was still in the process of becoming suburbanized and I would spy these scenic rural landscapes that were literally about to vanish before my eyes. At the time, my rustic barn art was all about saving these scenes before they were gone. Since then, it has expanded to include barns and sheds that may well be here after we’re all gone in genuinely rural settings.
Whatever the motivation, I think artwork featuring old barns and sheds speak to a side of us that yearns for a simpler way of life. In truth, the past is often seen through rose-colored glasses and is rarely quite as simple as we think. But you still have to respect the warm feelings it gives so many of us when we spot an idyllic barn or rustic shed in the countryside.
