Red Barn country rural landscape

"Red Barn"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas
10"x 10"

The old red barn.

I have always been drawn to the old red barns that dot the countryside.
Do you know why they are painted red?
I did some research and actually found many theories. So here's a bit of history today :)
The most popular one theory seems to be:
Early 18th-century bridges and barns went unpainted. However,by the late 1700's, natural wood seasoning gave way to artificial preservation. Virginia farmers were the first to become paint-conscious. Since ready-made paint was not available, a farmer mixed his own. Skimmed milk, lime and ferrous oxide, otherwise known as rust, made a plastic-like coating that hardened quickly and lasted for years. Rust was plentiful on farms and is a poison to many fungi, including mold and moss.
