While many artworks portraying Mitt Romney don't exactly show him in the most positive light, there are some artists out there who think Mitt is the cream of the crop.

The unusual crop art above is the work of Idaho artist Shawn Stolworthy, who honed his farming skills to pay homage to his candidate of choice. (Reagan 2012!) Romney's beaming grin can only be seen from above, but in case you don't own a helicopter, we'd like to show you this 10-acre dirt portait so you know it exists.

Stolworthy, not surprisingly, is a staunch Republican who especially identifies with the party's energy policies. To spread his political hopes far and wide, the artist, who has experience making around 100 corn mazes a year, uses a small John Deere tractor with a GPS to draw his realistic images. He attaches a Tototiller to dig up dirt along the way, and the whole process taking about five hours. As you can see, Stolworthy has given the gift of Romney's face to farms not only in Ohio, but in Michigan as well.

What do you think about Mitt's cornfield homage? A bit corny or just right?
