    • Hello Agata!! πŸ™‚

      Thank you! I completely agree. For me, they evoke nostalgia (of what I’m not sure as I grew up in very much an urban area), peace, and simplicity. They are uncomplicated in an increasingly complex world. Also, they’re surrounded by nature, and so the light around them is often wonderful. I appreciate your comment very much. I would LOVE to see you one paint one of these. πŸ™‚ Thanks again!

  1. I’m going to have to research barn construction history… I always wonder what the part sticking out (top right) is for… is it just decorative or is it structurally significant?… There is something about a huge barn in the middle of a field… In this image, for whatever reason, I’m surprised not to find a no-trespassing sign on the gate and imagine. Excellent capture

    • Hi Scott, my husband and I were talking about this as we drove through the country recently, and he said perhaps the pointy part is to keep rain from running onto the ground in front of the door and then into the building – since there are no gutters. I’ve looked online and couldn’t find a definitive answer, but that one sounds reasonable. What do you think?

  2. Hi Scott πŸ™‚

    Thank you.

    Re the pointy part on the roof (not the technical description, I’m sure), I’ve also wondered what purpose it serves. Not all barns have them and the ones that do have always been a mystery to me. I’ll look for an answer sometime soon and let you know.

    Re the no trespassing sign, they’re rare on a property that’s mostly just a field and buildings. I do see them on properties with timber and woods……..I suppose that look inviting to people hunting deer.

    Great comments, Scott. Thanks!
