George Zimmerman posts artwork on eBay

There is a bidding war on eBay for George Zimmerman's first hand-painted artwork.


George Zimmerman has taken up a new hobby that may also help pay the bills.

Local 6 has confirmed with Zimmerman's brother that he has posted his first painting on eBay. The painting displayed on the site depicts a flag with the words 'One Nation' under the word 'God'.

Bidding started at $50 and has since climbed to nearly $100,000 with 98 bids.

There is also reason to believe Zimmerman is still in the area. The post on eBay says the painting will ship from Sanford.

Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in July in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. That case sparked a nationwide debate about race and self-defense. Zimmerman was accused of racially profiling Martin and said he shot the teen to protect himself.

Last month, Zimmerman claimed in a court affidavit that he is $2 million in debt and has no income.
