Britney Spears' Watercolor Painting Auctioned Off for $10,000

Spears donated proceeds from painting sale to benefit victims of Las Vegas shooting; 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous' host Robin Leach was buyer

Britney Spears' latest creative venture isn't a musical one – a watercolor painting the singer previously shared on her Instagram account recently sold for $10,000 at a Las Vegas charity auction.

The piece, which features five flowers (four larger ones and one smaller one) in hues of pink, purple and blue, is now the prized possession of one Robin Leach, the former host of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

According to an Instagram user who shared a photo of Leach with his purchase, the former TV host was both the auctioneer and the winning bidder.

"It's #RobinLeach, who just auctioned this @britneyspears piece to … himself! Yes! Great $10k moment #VegasCares @venetianvegas," the user captioned the photo.

Proceeds from the charity auction will benefit victims of last month's Las Vegas shooting.

The pop star previously shared a behind-the-scenes video clip of herself creating her masterpiece on the Grecian terrace of her Thousand Oaks, California mansion. In the post to Instagram, shared October 13th, Spears can be seen in a cleavage-baring top partially covered by a paint-splattered painter’s shirt. Mozart's "Rondo Alla Turca" blares in the background.
