Using common pennies, artist Jacqueline Lou Skaggs has found an incredibly unique and creative way to display portraits. Instead of using a literal canvas as the base of her works, Skaggs paints each of her oil portraits onto copper pennies.
Since the beginning of her career, Skaggs has painted everything from a portrait of the Madonna and child to a surreal butterfly resting on a dismembered head from a marble statue. Each of these portraits is intensely detailed, down to the last shadow, even though pennies provide one of the smallest spaces possible to display a portrait.
Skaggs is one of the most innovative artists on the contemporary fine art scene, using a combination of inventive media and traditional subjects to create a gorgeous collection of one-of-a-kind works.
