Good Times!

No. 1
It's television trivia time on Reynolds Still.  Shoud you not be able to answer the question, you are allowed only ONE phone-a-friend.  I'm sure most of us have seen or at least heard of the 70's sitcom, Good Times.  Maybe you remember JJ's "Dynomite!!!"  What about the Sugar Shack painting shown at the end of the show? 

No. 2
Do you remember now?  Ernie Barnes is the incredible genious behind this infamous painting as well as many others.  His style is very recognizable with his use of vivd coloring, elongated forms, and unique subject matter.  I've picked out a few of my favorite and honestlly, would love to have one of his paintings hanging in my home.

Ernie Barnes is a man of incredible talent and artistry.  It's amazing how he represents the human form on canvas.  For those of you who are as fascinated by his talent as I am, you can purchase a coffee table book of his art HERE.

Good times Mr. Barnes, GOOD TIMES!

Best regards,
