For true connoisseurs of original local art, there is nothing quite so pure and good and fine as an Ernest Lee painting.
Our own Brad Warthen has two of them in his entrance hall, either side of his front door, and this makes him inordinately proud. They are both from Mr. Lee’s “Chicken” period.
OK, let’s face it — Ernest Lee has always been in his “Chicken” period, and we love him for it.
But even some of us who enjoy and appreciate him didn’t know, until today, that one can obtain Ernest Lee T-shirts!
