Barn Stories

Parkway Series #192  12 x 16  oil     Sold

As a college student, many years ago, I was given a book of Eric Sloane's Barns.  His paintings were an inspiration then as they are now.  My love of old barns is tied up in the "Story" - the story of hard work, of a time past when people lived off the land, a story of people who lived close to the earth and who had a reverance for it.  A little north of Floyd on the way back to Roanoke, this barn sits on the left side of the Parkway.  I would love to know more about the "story" of this barn.
