Amish Graffiti??

While driving through southern Ohio and West Virginia on her recent trip home to visit family (and take care of some bidness), my wife spotted a new trend among the farming crowd...Painted barns. Upon further investigation, I've found the culprit behind much of this new work.

Scott Hagan is a painter who has expanded his use of media to, well, the barn. Surprisingly, he's a fairly young artist to have chosen the "rural route" to getting his work out there, but I applaud him for bringing back the preferred advertising model of the 19th century. I'll take these over a billboard any day.

p.s...beware, the website is, let's just say "rural" as well.
