VERNACULAR ABSTRACT FARM ART
Farmer John King's tool garage has inadvertently become an abstract modern art palette. Located on the entrance side it creates tension by reflecting old against new, color against no-color, metal against wood and probably others that you might see. Love how abstracts can evolve without the maker knowing what he has done. I would call this facade a vernacular abstract.
