For any of you who watched the show Good Times, either as an original series or in reruns, you know the painting, Sugar Shack, pictured here.
What you may not know is the artist behind the art work, is Ernie Barnes. And you also may not know that Ernie Barnes passed away on Monday, here in Los Angeles.
It's funny how many of us don't think we're into art. But then when a painting like Sugar Shack has been etched in our minds for like ever, we soon realize that we are into art without thinking about it. And that there is a real person and story behind the work.
Ain't we lucky...
