Oh you read right...Sarah Palin...nude painting...political GOLD! The Old Town Ale House has put up a certain painting, portraying a certain ex-governor of Alaska, with a certain lack of proper winter apparel. Brad Flora at the WindyCitizen has a full story on the infamous portrait.

According to Flora, the artist Bruce Elliot, who is reported by the Huffington Post as working on a nude portrait of Rod Blagojevich, is a former golf hustler and co bar owner. The artist's daughter, Grace, was working behind the bar and imitating Palin. Elliot was inspired by the impersonation, and thus the painting was born!

But this painting is not the only depiction of a famous female celebrity posing for (or inspiring) art. In this photo gallery there are photos of Julianne Moore and Kim Cattrall recreating classical art. Take and look and see which ones you think were well done, and which ones seem like pathetic publicity stunts.
