BEHIND THE PAINTING
love this old barn! It was built in Lanesville, Indiana
by the Schellenberger family. The year was 1904 and the previous
barn on this site had burned, killing
two horses and a cow. For for the next 60 years
it served it's owners well.
in November 1963, the barn took on a new life due to
a new coat of paint. Harley Warrick came to town and
painted the Mail Pouch signs on the west and east ends.
Harley remembers exactly the day - "When I got back
to the motel that evening someone told me
Kennedy had been shot", he said.
The handsome landmark at the edge of Lanesville
aged and weathered gracefully. It has been fodder for photographers
and artists, and even survived attempts at
land development and demolition over the next thirty years.
I painted it in 1973 because I've always been drawn to the countryside
and the architecture of our ancestors.
But this location was even more meaningful
because my great, great grandfather settled in
this small Southern Indiana town in 1848.
The barn's location
across the creek from
Heritage Park made it an ideal purchase by the Lanesville
Heritage Committee in 1993. They restored it and prepared the
exterior for a repainting of the signs while
I invited Harley to return for a 'second painting'.
August 14-15, 1993, Harley Warrick came out of retirement
to give "Lanesville's Eiffel Tower"
a new lease on life. The crowds turned out, the Media was
And Harley shared his
while steadily painting away in 90+ temperatures.
on November 24, 2000, this "last Mail Pouch painter"
died at age 76.
This folk artist with deep rural roots had become
an American Treasure.
Harley's passing, I have come to appreciate even more the beauty
and uniqueness of the barn - and the friendship that I developed
with Harley. What a treasure it is for the Lanesville community.!
