George Zimmerman Takes Jab At Prosecutor In New Painting

Banking on the success of his first painting, George Zimmerman has upped the ante. He is now offering a new work of art for sale that pokes fun at Angela Corey, the prosecutor who charged him with murder.

Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., uploaded a photo of the new piece to Twitter last night.

The painting consists of a less than flattering depiction of a photograph that was taken of Corey on the day she announced second-degree murder and manslaughter charges against Zimmerman.

Corey's fingers are pinched tightly together in the painting and a caption reads, "I have this much respect for the American judicial system - Angie C."

The charges Corey filed were in connection to the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. In July of 2013, Zimmerman was acquitted by a jury who agreed with the defense's argument that he killed in self-defense.

Robert Zimmerman Jr. did not respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post Thursday morning. Via his Twitter page, he said more information on the painting is forthcoming.

While he's no Van Gogh, George Zimmerman's first painting recently sold for $100,000 on eBay. That painting depicted an American flag with the text "God, One Nation, With Liberty And Justice For All."

The hefty sum earned from that first sale dwarfs the initial earnings of Picasso and Van Gogh. Combined first sales by the two highly regarded artists netted less than $300.
