The Cave Barn by Luke Buck - original painting


"The Cave Barn" by Luke Buck
Advertising a Jesse James hideout.

Original, 8" X8", Watercolor/Gouache Painting, by Luke Buck
This painting is one of a series of 4 barns, each displaying different advertisements, and each depicting a different season the four seasons. I painted the old Meramec Caverns barn from a photo I took many years ago along Indiana highway 150, just a little West of Paoli, Indiana. This was one of those "two-fors" with the Mail Pouch ad on the front too. The barn is gone now, so I was especially glad I kept reference photos to paint from and was able to at least record the history of these beautiful old advertisement barns in paintings.

Approx. Framed size: 17 1/16" tall x 17 1/16" wide
Spectacular Indiana waterfall painting.

This advertisement promotes the old Mermen Caverns, one of the old Jessie James hideouts!
