He's no George Bush, but the eBay bidding is already well north of $100K on a George Zimmerman patriot painting. The subject, "America." The shows a blue-on-blue American flag with the words "God, One Nation, with Liberty and Justice for All" overlaid in lighter paint. Bidding started on Monday at 99 cents.
Zimmerman continues in a fine American tradition: John Wayne Gacy discovered painting later in life, too.
From the artist's statement:
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
I had a question for the artist:
