This painting is a scene of a flue curing log tobacco barn built by Jerry Locklair’s grandfather in 1918.     Tobacco was a primary cash crop for farmers south to north in the United States.     This labor intensive process was usually carried out by the entire family and neighbors, young and old working together side by side.     They harvested and processed the tobacco for curing and marketing.     This practice was discontinued in the late 1950’s when modern farming methods took over.
