American Gothic: Painted on a Barn in Iowa

Who says Iowa is dull? (Well, I do. Sometimes.)
But now and then you stumble upon cool stuff.
This fantastic sight is on Highway 30, between Cedar Rapids
and Mount Vernon, in the heart of Grant Wood country.

It was painted by Mark Benesh, an artist from Mount Vernon.

He was commissioned last summer by the owner of the barn to paint it.
It took him a little over a week.

There’s a cute little house nearby, but no one seems to be there currently.

So when you’re out there looking at the barn, it just looms silently.
It’s a sight to behold.
