Indiana Barns

We took a trip earlier this Summer from NH to a family reunion in Illinois. I fell in love with some of the seed signs along the side of the road. They have great graphics in bold, bright colors. I'd love to have a couple to hang on my studio walls.

While driving, I started noticing the doors on Indiana barns... Most of them had the door trim painted on them in an arch pattern. Indiana had red barns and Ohio had white barns. Wonder what local customs dictates the color of barns?

Some were realistic and others were just sort of a scalloped top edge.

A nicely done fresh coat of paint.

Even the little doors had painted arch trim.

This gem of an octagonal barn was just sitting in a field all by itself. What beautiful details.
