George Zimmerman can now add "painter" to his resume after the former neighborhood watchman purportedly listed an original painting on eBay.
The 18-by-24-inch canvas features a blue, waving American flag with the words, "God, one nation, with liberty and justice for all" emblazoned across it.
The auction was posted Monday at a starting bid of 99 cents and is scheduled to end Saturday. As of Tuesday night, 108 bids were logged for the painting, ratcheting the price up to $110,100. The next bid would top $110,200.
Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., confirmed that George painted the piece.
But is it any good?
“It's a travesty. It’s a poster.”
Saltz considers it absurd that Zimmerman’s painting is fetching a price tag that places him in the same class as artists Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.
“To me, what he made was a simpleton, copy, quasi-psychotic [painting],” Saltz says.
“What that speaks to that [bidders] think that George Zimmerman is a cause. They're not buying this work of art. They're buying the idea that George Zimmerman, a person that, in my opinion, got away with a crime, is worthy of supporting.”
