This story is several weeks old, but a painting done by George Zimmerman, which was initially listed on Ebay with a starting price of .99 cents, sold in December for $100,099.99. The painting is a depiction of the American flag in blue, with the words “God, One Nation, with Liberty and Justice for All".

Zimmerman offered this 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


This isn't the first time Zimmerman has made the news since his acquittal in the murder of Trayvon Martin. Last September he was pulled over for speeding in Texas where he was found carrying a firearm in his 2008 Honda.
