Britney Spearsā€™ oil painting video made the internet rounds about a month ago, capturing the publicā€™s imagination with its use of a sprightly Mozart piano sonata as a score, her flamingo pose while painting what appeared to be a Lisa Frank-inspired work, and the paintingā€™s own strange, bifurcated composition (why keep the flowers apart from the swirls, we wonder?).

But the platinum-selling singer wasnā€™t just making art for artā€™s sakeā€”Spears was actually preparing to auction off the work to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. According to Spears, the flowers ā€œrepresent a new beginning, and itā€™s in that spirit that we move forward,ā€ which is a lovely sentiment. And according to Bored Panda, the painting has already sold for $10,000 at the Vegas Cares auction.

So who picked up this bit of Trapper Keeper art (thatā€™s no diss; Trapper Keepers used to provide a great means of expressing ourselves)? None other than the one-time narrator of the Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous, Robin Leach.

Oh, we see nowā€”the swirlsā€™ side was just where Spears was mixing her paint. Well, this is a win-win-win: Leach has a solid painting to add to his collection, the victimsā€™ fund got a swell donation, and Spears is probably just one or two paintings away from putting on a show at the Bellagio Gallery Of Fine Art.
