Sarah Palin nude painting
Chicago Tribune ^ | 6/14/09 | Emma Graves Fitzsimmons

Posted on 06/14/2009 7:32:15 AM PDT by Borges

Bruce Elliott has painted a nude portrait of Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and hung it above the Old Town Ale House, where it's now a prime attraction among his display of more than 200 celebrity portraits and other racy art.

Elliott's wife, Tobin Mitchen, owns the bar on Chicago's North Side,

Palin became Elliott's muse after he saw her on TV.

"I've been following her religiously," he said Monday at the bar. "I had never heard of her before, like everyone else. I find her bizarrely fascinating, even though I pretty much despise everything she stands for."

Despite their political differences, Elliott admits to a bit of a crush on the Alaska governor. He began painting her smile and trademark glasses, he said, before filling in the details: a gun, red high heels, polar bear rug, rugged Alaska landscape and a scared moose. His daughter, who looks a little like Palin and does a great impression of her, served as model for the governor's body

After Palin is president, many, many lives from now, someone will “discover” this painting. They will use it to revise history that Palin wasn’t really conservative, faithful. She just used faith to hold down little people, keep women barefoot and pregnant.

You're right it is. It threw me off since the Tribune restricts really old content to paying subscribers. I wonder why they made this one available to all.

I am breathlessly awaiting the ‘first’ nude painting of a prominent liberal, you know, one who is equally well known in politics. We do have so many to pick from ... but considering the field I am suddenly aware of the minefield. Nudes of Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Mikulski, Maxine Waters, ... I think I need to rethink. The image of a certain White House Press Conference fixture is making me quite nauseous - PLEASE NO PICTURES!

So, if I read the article right, he painted his nekkid daughter, with Sarah Palin's face on the body?

Why, he is only a few religious symbols made of fecal material away from being a celebrated (NEA grant-getting) artist.

Sick puppy.

You’re right... he’s not a very good artist. Very two dimensional and lacking flavor. His work is also very cartoonish and poorly proportioned. This is an attempt to get some kind of recognition and fame since the quality of his art won’t get it for him... massive fail on his part.

That’s not a painting, that’a a cartoon.

And the left seems to have a need to replace Bush Derangement Syndrome with Palin Derangement Syndrome.

How sick are these people?

One does not have to be if it serves The Agenda™.

That's a grade school painting, the canvas equivalent of Rall's clumsy pornography.

But it's the Special Thought that counts. We don't DO "Talent" any more.

I am almost speechless.

The North side is very liberal, they have their good jobs a boat for the lake, high cost housing, and Chicago Sports to round out their sleepiness to the American condition. So he takes his twisted liberalism (notice he despises her politics) and uses his "art" to jab her.

Imagine a nude of Hillary or Michelle done by a conservative, the liberals would scream to high heaven.

IMHO this is a very odd man...

“He’s not a very good artist....”

A pathetic 3rd graders quality painting you couldn't get .50 cents for at a garage sale.
Oh, what a true artist like Alberto Vargas could of done with a beauty like Palin. Of course, Michell Obama or Hillary painted on the nose of a B24 would of scared the Nazis more.

He despises everything she stands for.

2nd Amendment
Freedom
Not killing babies
Motherhood
Raising and loving handicapped kids
women in politics.

If he despises these things I despise him.

By the way his art isnt art, it literally sucks.

Jeez, how disgusting. Does the Chicago Tribune have no shame? Anyone with any brains knows why this story has come out now.

I hope Chicagoan's understand how their paper is trying to use them to build ugliness towards the Palin family, AGAIN.

Just despicable...

Bruce Elliott used his daughter, who works in the bar to pose as Sarah Palin. He says she’s a great impersonator of Alaska governor and can even pull her voice. Some people may find this shocking, but when Bruce Elliott was painting his daughter, she was posing for him naked. So the hot body of Sarah Palin in that painting is actually the body of Bruce Elliott’s daughter, a girl who works behind the bar. She says her father changed her diapers when she was little…
