Skot_Olsen-Ed_Leedskalnin. Click for larger version.

I like this work by Skot Olsen quite a bit. He uses a portrait studio, dramatic background and realistic (but not hyper-realistic) style in his painting of the taught-faced, uneven-eyed Ed Leedskalnin, a Latvian-born eccentric who built the largest coral castle in southern Florida.

Shown above is Coelho, by artist Deveras. “Coelho” is Portuguese for “rabbit” and insanely famous author. This is my pick for The Best of the Best Moleskin Art of 2009.

A pair of large paintings by Morris Molino, titles unknown. You may notice that I flipped the image on the left, which is probably a very bad thing to do. I just thought they made a better couple that way.
