Chicago artist paints nude portrait of Palin

Posted: Wednesday, October 01, 2008

CHICAGO - While journalists scramble to reveal everything Sarah Palin has said and done during her career, a Chicago artist is taking things a step further.

Bruce Elliott has painted a nude portrait of the Republican vice presidential nominee.

The painting of a smiling - and very naked - Palin standing on a polar bearskin rug in front of an Alaska landscape, holding what looks like an assault rifle is now hanging at the Old Town Ale House on Chicago's North Side.

Elliot's wife owns the tavern and a lot of nudes Elliott has painted are on display.

But this one is bringing in crowds as people have been steadily streaming into the place to take pictures of the painting with camera phones ever since Elliott put it up Thursday.

His daughter, who looks a little like Palin and does a great impression of her, served as model for the governor's body.
