    Man, that's a bummer.

    He'll always be big time around here, on account of the Chargers glory and "I Want You." And all those Bua paintings that are so popular right now, which totally follow up where Barnes left off.

    Dude will be missed, for sure.

    My former supervisor has very nice large prints from Barnes from the Olympics. It really worked well since Barnes likes to stylize his figures in a very dynamic way.

    It's a shame, I remember first seeing his work as a kid on the show Good Times ...as Jimmy Walker played the role of the Painter. It also reminds me how well a show could be written about people living in the projects but having values. A lot of shows these days portray a loser or bumbling fool. Ernie Barnes was just a nice piece of that puzzle for the show.
