You might win some/But you just lost one (c) L Boogie

RIP Ernie Barnes...


I was obsessed with Mr. Barnes' painting Sugar Shack as a child... I first saw it on a Marvin Gaye I Want You album that my Mom had and fell in LOVE with it! You were a very talented painter Mr. Barnes, you will be missed...









*Somewhat interesting fact: Yeezy commissioned Ernie to do a piece that would serve as his interpretation of West's recovery from his 2002 car crash... It currently hangs from Kanye's dining room ceiling.
