In this scene, a cotton field and colorful barn near Edgefield remind us of an industry that was once one of the largest in South Carolina. Sadly, the barn was torn down a few years ago and a grove of peaches now stand where the cotton once grew.
Artist Trish Jones of Madison, Georgia found this barn charming enough to reproduce in a painting, seen below. The 12″x12″ depiction was created in acrylics on a wood panel. She tells us, “Just wanted you to see my interpretation of the beautiful Edgefield Cotton Barn.” Jones sells her art, including this piece, online and at art shows.
