i’m jealous of nathan ritterpusch

Ok, I love these. L.O.V.E. these! This is only a small sampling of one series by American artist Nathan Ritterpusch. All of these gorgeous oil paintings are part of  a series titled, “Old Enough To Be My Mother”. Wobbly, saturated portraits inspired by vintage film stills… frankly, it’s a miracle that I was able to control myself, and only show five. Such restraint, no?!

{Another series of Nathan’s work will be exhibited in “Wrap Troubles in your Dreams” at RARE in New York, October 11th- November 8th}
