    Carl Barks Time Wasters Oil Painting Original Art (1975). The "money bin" scenes stand as the most desirable Carl Barks paintings. Less than 20 were produced, and this is one of the best.

    Despite Uncle Scrooge's alarm, let's face it -- all work and no play would make Huey, Dewey, and Louie mundane money-counters indeed. The winning bidder is sure to spend plenty of "idle" moments admiring this superb work.

    This oil on board painting, based on the 1956 cover of Uncle Scrooge #13, has been indexed by Barks scholars as painting #100L (Barks identification number 9-75). It is reproduced on page 246 (as color plate 84) of The Fine Art of Walt Disney's Donald Duck. The image area of this merry money bin moment measures 20" x 16", and it has been framed to an overall size of 34" x 30". The art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Carl Barks at the lower left. From the Kerby Confer Collection.
