AceShowbiz - Britney Spears just sold her watercolor painting for a huge amount. The 35-year-old songstress has recently taken to Instagram to show her artistic skill, posting a video of herself capturing a beautiful garden on a canvas. With Mozart's "Rondo Alla Turca" playing in the background, she captioned it, "Sometimes you just gotta play!!!"
After finishing her artwork, Britney then put the piece, which features three pink flowers and two blue flowers, up for sale at Vegas Cares benefit concert, which was held to raise money for Las Vegas shooting memorial. In a video message during the concert, Britney stated that the painting represented a new beginning.
"I'm so proud to call Vegas my second home and I'm pleased to participate in this Vegas Cares show," she said. "The flowers in my painting represent a new beginning, and it's in that spirit that we move forward. All the proceeds from the winning bid go to Vegas Care Memorial Fund. I appreciate your kindness and your generosity - I love you, Vegas."
The painting was eventually sold to entertainment reporter Robin Leach, who is known for hosting "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous", for $10,000. Celebrating his win, Robin took a picture with the artwork. The picture later was shared on Instagram by Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist John Katsilometes. He captioned it, "It's #RobinLeach, who just auctioned this @britneyspears piece to... himself! Yes! Great $10K moment."
Prior to this, Britney has donated $1,000,000 of her ticket sales from her "Piece of Me" residency to Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation's Britney Spears Campus, which she helped open. The "Gimme More" songstress attended the grand opening of the campus on Saturday, November 4. "I'm just really excited to be standing here for our new NCFF campus," Britney said during the event. "I'm so thankful to everyone for their generosity in making this a reality and making this happen."
