Ernest Eugene Barnes Jr. (born July 15, 1938 in Durham, North Carolina) is an American artist. He is probably best known for his painting Sugar Shack which is featured in the credits of the 1970s American sitcom Good Times.

His work is characterized by elongated figures, usually in motion. Owing to his athletic background, Barnes played 5 season in the NFL, many of his paintings have a sports theme. He was named Official Artist of the 1984 Summer Olympics. He is the recipient of the 1984 and 2004 Sport Artist of the Year Award presented annually by the American Sport Art Museum and Archives.
