Having recently sold a poster of Grant Wood’s iconic painting, I couldn’t resist showing you this barn. Appropriately for me, it’s at Mount Vernon, which was named in honour of an ancestor of mine. When Lawrence, George Washington’s older half-brother, was in the Royal Navy, his commanding officer was Admiral Edward Vernon of War of Jenkins’ Ear and Portobello fame.

A hidden barn-sized rendition of Grant Wood’s most famous, and most parodied, painting.

Take care and keep laughing!
