Flea Market Find

I found this large oil painting this past weekend at the flea market. It's probably from the 40's or 50's as it does have a little crackling. It also needs a good cleaning. I have had several barn paintings and they differ depending on what part of the country they come from. I liked the overall green tones of this one and it was larger than most. I don't even know where I will hang it - the mark of a hopeless collector. I needed this like I need another hole in my head. Just thought I'd share it with you.


  1. A wonderful piece...
    I love barns, especailly old ones. Sometimes I just sit paintings on top of high pieces of furniture, standing independent.
    I need to get to the flea markets, more often ;)

  2. That is very cool. I like it. I love barn pictures/paintings too. I just like old barns. They speak to me.

  3. Hullo!
    I found you at Willow's re: a ghost story.

    Gorgeous blog.
    I've never been inside a barn, but we do have some feral cats here in the Bronx.

  5. Auntie, I certainly will be there Friday. I'll look up that ghost story too.
