The artist is Old Town's co-owner Bruce Elliot who said that he was inspired by his daughter's "dead-on" impersonation of Palin.
Implications - Elliot's daughter, whose name is Grace, served as a model for his painting. The artist says that he is not worried about offending Palin because he feels that he has "made her into a sex figure." In his painting Palin wears nothing but red high heels and is holding a very large gun. She is standing on a polar bear rug and a moose can be seen outside the window she is standing in front of.
