Vigilante George’s paint-by-numbers trouble redux

George Zimmerman’s first painting that allegedly sold for $100,000 was criticized for copying a stock photo of the American flag. It seems his second painting is also guilty of copying, but this time the copyright holder is threatening to sue.

NEW YORK – A painting by George Zimmerman of the Florida attorney who prosecuted him in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin is a copy of an Associated Press photo, a spokesman for the news agency said Friday.

A photo of the painting of prosecutor Angela Corey was posted on Twitter by Zimmerman’s brother, Robert, saying he would entertain offers for its purchase.
