      Jacqueline Lou Skaggs creates incredible oil paintings on the face of a penny (go ahead, I'll wait for you to wrap your noggin around that). All part of a series called "Tondi Observations", her original intent was to simply use them in purchase or toss them in the street for others to find . . . until people started purchasing them.
