This is the George Zimmerman that shot and killed teenager, Trayvon Martin in Florida, and was acquitted in a jury trial.
The painting was scrutinized by an expert, and said to be a traced-over stock photo.
Twenty-four bidders got in the game to be the winner of George’s painting, with a total of 96 bids, to claim the artwork.
According to George:
First hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman. Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-) I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman
The painting is a flag with a blue background and some of the words of the pledge of allegiance written on it, and is signed by George Zimmerman.
eBay will rake in $10,009.99 of the sale.
