Penny Art - Jacqueline Lou Skaggs

Quote
Most people would walk by a lone penny on the sidewalk. Why bother? But to Jacqueline Lou Skaggs, it's a canvas -- and an inspiration.

The New York-based artist has been working on meticulous mini-masterworks on the common one-cent coin since the 1990s.

"Of all coins, it is the penny that is so neglected and blatantly discarded," she said in an email interview. "It was only this intrinsic 'valuelessness' that interested me. I wasn't interested in painting miniatures -- I was interested in painting on pennies."
