Spears, 35, who found worldwide fame in the late 1990s with ‘Baby One More Time‘ and ‘Oops, I Did It Again’, posted on Instagram last month a short clip of her painting the artwork of some bright flowers.

She was filmed in a lush outdoor setting as Mozart’s ‘Turkish March’ played.

“Sometimes you just gotta play!!!!!!” she wrote on Instagram, ending the caption with a whole host of emojis.

The painting was donated to the Vegas Cares benefit auction held in the city last weekend.

It was bought for a sizable $10,000 by Robin Leach, perhaps best known for his role as host of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
