Art We Can Live Without, Part XXIV: Rod Blagojevich Nude

Who wants to buy Bruce Elliott’s painting of soon to be former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich in the nude? Me neither:

Irreverent hardly begins to describe it. The scene imagines Blagojevich handcuffed and wearing an orange jumpsuit pulled down to his knees.

Among the onlookers is a guard, with a look of grim determination, pulling on a rubber glove.

The painting, which is taking Elliott a little over a week to finish, is titled: “The Cavity Search.”

Something tells me that I really don’t want my car to break down in front of Mr. Elliott’s house.

Suggested caption for the painting: “Hey, how did Jesse Jackson Jr.’s watch get in here?”
