Giant 1909 Lincoln Penny c.2019
Coin relief Dia 27" on 30"x40" cotton canvas
For a long time I was a coin collector. Not into silver or gold, but more about the art and nostalgia. The Lincoln Cent is by far, and without a doubt my most favorite coin of all. The humility and humbleness of it is what I just love! Not to mention Lincoln is my most favorite president of all time. The simplicity of it just screams Americana. I just had to make one, to make many or several. Like the saying goes E. PLURIBUS UNUM (OUT OF MANY, ONE) I have an earier posting displaying the clay sculpture of the penny. It took over 120 hours and a careful eye to replicate this almost to the original . I fashioned it from the original 1909 to 1968 cent which I liked. The original design was brought back in 2010. A real coin dealer can tell the very subtle nuances to the changes made throughout the years, even the errors.... In my collection, I never had a 2009 1st year issue, so I made one instead. The one shown here is from a cast mold of the sculpt itself. Its made of Acylic medium and cloth, then detailed with heavy acrylic paint. I'm planing on adding more embellishment to it for decor purposes. Give a follow to see the conclusion of this and many other works here on my instagram. Thank you, and many blessings..... #1909copperpenny #copperpenny #sculpture #acryliconcanvas #acrylicpainting #reliefart #impasto #liberty #feedom #Lincoln #artisan #Lincolncent #coinart #coins #numismatist #numismatics #1909lincolncent #artsandcrafts #woodworker #Americana #InGodWeTrust #decor #homedecor #interiordecor #robvegart #maker #makersgonnamake #pennsylvania #coinmaking #newyorkstate

Not too shabby of a hair day but... It's raining and I have a tiny red bump on the very end if my nose. So so ready for a hair cut...or head shave. #justkidding Looking at long shag cuts on Pinterest...sorta emo looking but I'm still interested. Also, second pic reveals my true struggle with selfie's. #maximizehair #minimizewrinkles
