George Zimmerman is no da Vinci

Terry Dickson's blog

George Zimmerman's new painting of his personal special prosecutor Angela Corey is never going to be mistaken for a 21st Century Mona Lisa.

Let's also be clear that Zimmerman's "art" bears little resemblance to that of Leonardo da Vinci.

It does bear a remarkable resemblance, however, to an Associated Press photo of Corey at a press conference. There are differences. The AP photo was in natural living color. Zimmerman's painting is in red and orange.

Zimmerman also took some painterly license in removing a microphone from in front of Corey. He left in one necklace but removed a gold cross pendant. He must not think she's a Christian.

Zimmerman also put some words in Corey's mouth with the painted-on text, "I have this much respect for the American judicial system."

He has his reasons. It was State Attorney Angela Corey who prosecuted Zimmerman for second degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012.

Although he was acquitted, the public has been treated to all of his legal stumbles ever since. He's had a few, but he's no Justin Beiber.

Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr. posted the painting Wednesday on Twitter. Details on the sale of the painting are due Thursday, Robert Zimmerman promised.

Zimmerman sold another painting on eBay last month, with a winning bid of $100,099.99, AP reports.

So far, Corey has not critiqued Zimmerman's art. 

I don't expect this one will ever hang in the Louvre. The Loo? Perhaps.

At $100K it seems as if Mr.

At $100K it seems as if Mr. Zimmerman's painting has been recognized more highly than any tome sold under the name of Terry Dickson.

Mr. Zimmerman is no da Vinci, but then Mr. Dickson is no Shakespeare. However, if monetary remuneration is an indication of talent in your field of endeavor I'd say Mr. Zimmerman is well ahead so far.

Most all paintings of "images

Most all paintings of "images of evil" are vibrant with the red/organge colors accenting the main subject. He sure got his color scheme right for the main subject and GZ is talented. This particular painting was a waste of time, canvas, and oils unless one wants to be reminded on a daily basis what an real ego maniac looks like.
