A Barn With Character

This barn, although it could be a large storage shed for farm equipment, sits on a corner of two country roads in rural southwestern Isabella County near Blanchard. It is surrounded by Old Order Amish farms. I believe this barn and property is owned by an Amish farmer. 

The area is very picturesque and I have been drawn to this structure for years.  The other side is just as interesting but looks nothing like this side!

I prefer barns like this rather than tidy, perfect barns as subjects for my paintings. That being said, my painting before this one is of one of those picture perfect Amish Farms!
