Rachael Ray in the Nude, Floating in the River Evoo
It's no Paula Deen pot roast doll, but this classical (and classy!) nude painting of Rachael Ray by Alex Gardega is up there with foodie gift idea no-nos.
The portrait, which Gardega assures was done in earnest: "no Irony here, No snarky modernism," is up for bid on eBay until next Friday. At the time of reporting, it was going for $102.50.
