Bids for George Zimmerman artwork near $100,000
CNN ^ | December 17, 2013 | Vivian Kuo

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

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 morning, 98 bids were logged for the painting, ratcheting the price up to $99,966. The next bid would top $100,000.

Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., confirmed that George painted the piece.

"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," the item description reads. "My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors."(continued)

One of the first defenders against the knock out game with a player that violated the one hit rule.

As soon as St. Trayvon’s grifter relatives find out George has any money they will be rooting around after it like feral hogs.

Actually, Picasso could paint very, very well. That didn't pay so well. At one point he was freezing in an abandoned building and had to set his own paintings on fire for heat. He eventually found there was more money in cubism.

they can’t florida’s syg law has tort reform built in.

if the perp’s family sues then their case will be tossed and they will have to pay all court fees and costs. It further opens the state to malicious prosecution claims.

Thanks - that's good news.

But you know they would if they could.

Their 15 minutes of fame was up a while back and I imagine sales of the Official Trayvon Hoodies and Official Trayvon Memorial Skittles they peddle have dropped off considerably.

Yes, I know that. But I'm basing my opinion on what he was best known for.

According to DUh, he hosed that artwork from Getty images and although I don’t have a link, it sure looks like it.

That would badly affect their feedback score...and positive feedback is like crack to sellers and buyers on Ebay. Of course, I have 100% positive feedback on the site...as both seller and buyer. lol

I visited Picasso’s home when we were in Europe years ago. Once you get there, the guides hand you wine glasses and cheese while she leads the group around the home. After each tour, they lead you to the veranda’ for paella’. They just want you to enjoy the atmosphere and the remaining paintings on a full stomach I guess..

10-4 on that, I've got a perfect score on over 300 transactions.

I do a lot of shopping on EBAY and some selling, that score is important.

Nothing to wonder about, he was assaulted and defended himself.

The only thing I would have done differently would be to shoot sooner.

you might be spot on....anyone with less than 5 transactions should be suspect...But they do have 100% positive..I think.

Actually, Picasso was one of the few artists who actually made a good living from his work while alive. He only did the "starving artist" bit for a few years, very early on. He lived quite well the rest of his life.

True, but he seems to be a different person these days. That does make you wonder about his statements earlier - at least to me. I can understand that maybe his ordeal made him into what he is now, but that is not a good thing.

Oh yes, he did ask for all the publicity that he has received in the last couple of years! That is his problem!

First of all, they run the risk of their bid winning which is a legally binding contract and could cause someone legal liability if they fail to pay up.

Secondly, it looks like this IS Zimmerman because he's posted a photo of him posing with his artwork and it does not appear to be Photoshopped.

That's insane. How did he ask for the MSM to make things up and cover him relentlessly? How did he ask the FL gov to get a special prosecutor to make a case against him? How did he ask the race baiters to come out of the woodwork and harass him?

You have no idea what you're talking about.

Sorry, but his actions that caused his several arrests and court actions against him were his actions - after the fact! Those are police actions that were because of his actions - not anyone else.

So if you want to excuse that, that is your choice. He was within his rights earlier but with his actions later, I question him...that is my right.

You think he asked Trayvon to smash his skull into the pavement?

It is also my choice to realize that all of those things happened since his trial concluded on July 14th 2013 which was five months ago not two years ago. It hasn't even been two years since he shot that thug on Feb. 26th 2012. The story didn't get national coverage until the middle of March 2012.

So when someone says "he did ask for all the publicity that he has received in the last couple of years! That is his problem!" I know for a fact they they either don't know a damn thing about it or they have some agenda.

I'll bet you can't even name the "police actions" that have
happened to GZ since he was acquitted five months ago.

No, this is not about Travon - that has long been settled (and rightly so in my opinion). I’m talking about his actions after this event and they have not been exactly what you would expect of a normally innocent fellow.

Now I understand that duress and other pressures might make a difference, but come on, do you really thing that the following problems are due to this?

What this means is that he is a strange fellow and seems to relish breaking the law. So... beginning to wonder about him... Just how hard is that to understand?

Tiger, you are just jumping to conclusions and also wanting to fight where there is no question about the outcome.

I can understand if you are a relative but really, other than that, you are way out on a limb here...

I jumped to no conclusions I stated hard facts. Those dates
are easily searchable and the math wasn't too hard either.

Well, I sense that you are either related or have close relations to him so..

He received at least two speeding tickets and a court order against him (regarding is girl friend) so that means that he was having some problems of his own. Sorry, but I know that speeding tickets are usually because of problems with concentration - but will leave that up to your expertise.

Now you, with your insight might know different but to us peons, it seems that he was having some problems after the breakup.

If you have information other than that, please let us know.

Either way, or any way - his actions after the fact gave me no assurance of his actions prior to this - ie, the shooting (which of course I assumed his innocence).

So, two speeding tickets and the false report by his girlfriend. Wow! You forgot the false report by his wife. All of which was worthy of national press coverage right? Especially those speeding tickets. Stop the presses.

FWIW I never heard of him until the MSM made him a story (less than two years ago) but I not the Rules for Radicals Alinsky tactic of trying to tie me to him with a lie (repeat it enough and people will believe it) and polarizing me with that false association.

Wow, I am surprised that you are not related or being payed in that you are so enthusiastic in representing him.

Don’t you know that getting speeding tickets is really a rare event? Me, 1 per decade or so (usually much less).

Speeding tickets are the result of the person - usually because they are in a hurry or they are indifferent to the laws. People that break the “speeding” law seem to do it all the time. It’s a personality issue it seems... That makes it an understanding of the person - a bit at least.

I am not tying you to him for any reason but am interested in why you are defending him so? I also defended him during his Travon trial but not so much now...

You have to look at the whole picture to get an idea of the man and you seem to disregard some of those aspects. We do agree in the overall, at least during the Travon trial but you seem to be taking it much further than I would...

If you can't see by now that the only reason he gets any coverage is because of the leftist agenda against him then there probably isn't anything I can say that would get through to you now. Why should I defend him? Because that agenda is aimed at conservatives not George Zimmerman.

But, no, you want to look at "the whole man" and miss the big picture completely. I guess you think the MSM/left has given up and has nothing to do with what's happening to him now.

The POTUS spoke out against him. The U.S. AG investigated him and in spite of no findings against him from the DoJ the AG says he will continue to investigate him. U.S. Congressmen have spoken against him in the well of the House. Rick Santorum publically denounced him as crazy. The FL governor assigned a special prosecutor to bring charges against him. The special prosecutor did. The MSM has lied about and demonized him for nearly two years. Spike Lee tweeted his parent's address for psychos to find them. The NBPP issued dead or alive wanted posters on him. Not one LEA, prosecutor or politician in the country condemned that giving the impression that his assassination has been officially sanctioned. He's a quarter million dollars in debt.

How would you do with that thrown against you?

And don't try that BS about having no idea you were trying to smear me with a false association. That's utter crap.

Sorry, but you are wrong and that is okay. I usually think along the lines that you do...

But.. This is an opinion that has nothing to do with politics but has to do with his actions. You need to see the difference.

I could care less about MSM coverage, or any other news. I am going by his actions and you should also. I really do not like folks that break the law (generally) and expect better than normal treatment! It is a generation thing maybe, but I believe in the laws of the land and expect folks to respect them! Old and maybe obsolete...

I think Pablo was a teenager when he painted this. I believe that girl is one of his sisters at her First Communion Ceremony, one of the Sacraments of the Catholic Church. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong.

I truly am to know this! The work I have seen even had brush streaks. Now I realize he was probably mocking the art critics!
