Paintings of vintage items by Robert Townsend

Los Angeles-based pop realist painter, Robert Townsend, is a sucker for vintage items. And he paints suckers, too. Vintage matchbooks, postcards and moments of wanderlust play reoccurring themes in his work, along with sweets like cupcakes and lollipops. Sprinkled in the mix are glimpses of his sense of humor, like his 72×48 inch oil painting of a used car salesman named Bill Connor.
