George Zimmerman hasn’t held a job in nearly two years, but he’s about to make some serious cash from one of his original paintings. A portrait that Zimmerman made of the American flag resulted in a bidding war on eBay with over 108 bids, eventually closing with a high bid of over $110,000.
The painting features a portion of an American flag painted in shades of black and white, complete with the words “GOD – ONE NATION with LIBERTY and JUSTICE FOR ALL.” The artwork made by Zimmerman also has his signature at the bottom. He said it’s his first artistic work and was made with household latex paint instead of oils or acrylics. “I know it’s not the fanciest, but it is what we had,” he wrote on the site. “[It] allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors.”
Since being acquitted last July, Zimmerman has continued to find himself in trouble with the law. He has received numerous speeding tickets and was arrested for domestic violence last month. Zimmerman allegedly pointed a shotgun at the face of his pregnant girlfriend and forced her out of their home, but she later dropped the case against home. His wife also filed for divorce last fall and his mother-in-law filed a police report against him last September, claiming that he stole furniture and a TV from her home.
