This painting is the latest from Zimmerman. Not my taste, but I’m sure he’ll make a ton from it. The first one sold for over 100K.
Wasn’t the first one basically a copy of another picture?
You know who else was a competent but not exceptional artist?
I’d forgotten about this guy. I thought you meant George Zimmer of the Men’s Wearhouse. :smack:
No, it wasn’t. You could take a photograph of a waving American flag, recolour it, add some text and it would look a lot like his painting, but you can’t own the concept of a waving American flag.
As is this one, or at least, a copy of the AP’s photo:
Zimmerman has been getting lessons. He’s a lot better than me. I can barely draw stick figures.

I bet he’s projecting the original image onto his canvas and do an electronic paint-by-number.
Kind of ironic that the OP’s username is “not what you’d expect”.
He’s like a modern Rembrandt. If Rembrandt just painted, instead of murdering an unarmed teenager.
For some reason he omitted what looks like a cross necklace she was wearing even though he got every other detail.
I think Duckster has the right idea.
