1910 Barnwood ART Collection
These paintings you are looking at are a true piece of American History.
They are done on original barnwood reclaimed from an actual working barn located in the
foothills of the Catskill Mountains, NY.
The barn was erected around 1910-1912. It was originally a working dairy farm also housing vegetables and various livestock. In
2013, Mother Nature finally took her toll. A heavy snow had fallen and
the roof could no longer support the massive load. The old barn had
collapsed. The wood you see in front of you was taken directly from that
barn allowing the history of this great old barn to live on.
As you look at these paintings one remarkable fact must be thought about. Around the time this old barn was constructed mills were not nearly as sophisticated as they are today. Usually a tree would need to be full grown or at least near maturity before it would be taken to be milled. With that thought in mind just imagine how old this tree is from its days as a young sapling. It truly may have taken root more then 200-250 years ago, possibly much older as some trees have tremendous life-spans. This wood may possibly be older then our country itself.
A remarkable thought!
