Life is looking pretty good for George right now.
These are good days for George Zimmerman. He’s selling art for big bucks, he got his guns back, and …, um, well, he’s back with Samantha Sheibe.
Becca Lower brings us all this news which may portend more blog posts here in the future.
From the L.A. Times:
How much is a painting created by George Zimmerman worth?
For one EBay bidder, $100,099.99 was just the right price.
The user’s prize: A signed 18-inch-by-24-inch oil painting of a blue American flag featuring a part of the Pledge of Allegiance, which had a starting bid of $0.99.
The identity of the buyer is unknown, but according to the listing, the winning auction bid was one of 96 by 24 users when bidding closed at 9:55 a.m. Saturday.
Using the EBay account “therealgeorgez,” Zimmerman, 30, put his artwork up for auction early this week.
“Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself,” the listing reads. “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 :-)”
Zimmerman, 30, whose arsenal was confiscated in November following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend, picked up his four firearms, including a shotgun and an assault rifle from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office in Sanford, Fla., this week.
He was eligible to retrieve the weapons since Dec. 11 when assault charges against him were dismissed.
Zimmerman, perhaps Florida’s most notorious gun owner, picked up the weapons on Tuesday and Wednesday and returned to the sheriff’s office on Thursday with girlfriend Samantha Scheibe, 27, because she also had to retrieve a handgun police seized during the same incident in November.
Returned to Zimmerman were an Interarms .380-caliber handgun, a Glock 19 handgun, a Kel-Tec 12-gauge shotgun and an AR-15 assault rifle.
Scheibe picked up her Taurus 9mm handgun.
