George Zimmerman is continuing his artistic renaissance by releasing a fiery painting of the special prosecutor who charged him in the killing of teenager Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., unveiled the painting on Twitter Wednesday and teased a Thursday sale date.

The painting depicts Florida State Attorney Angela Corey pinching her fingers together in red and orange hues. “I have this much respect for the ‘American judicial system. Angie C,” it reads.

As the New York Daily News points out, the painting copies an Associated Press photo of the moment when Corey publicly announced a second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman in April 2012.

Last month Zimmerman sold a painting of an American flag — apparently copied from a Shutterstock image — on eBay for $100,099.99.

TPM has reached out to the AP for comment on the image.
