Round Barns of America: Meet the artist who is preserving the rural landscape

One artist is using his talents to pay homage to the rural lifestyle, specifically farm barns!

Bob Kroeger has been traveling the country, painting old barns in an effort to preserve the rural landscape. His latest book, Round Barns of America, features structures in 32 states, capturing the stories of early Americana.

He spoke with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison about what exactly is a round barn, where you could find one, and why he does paintings of them.
