Local artist paints nude portrait of gov.

CHICAGO Beleaguered Gov. Rod Blagojevich is immortalized in the buff by local artist Bruce Elliott.

Once it's finished, the painting of Blagojevich will hang on the wall of the Old Town Ale House, right next to Palin.

Elliot calls the paintings his "nude governor series."

The artwork depicts Blagojevich preparing for his first day of jail.

The governor was arrested last week on corruption charges.
