By Alex Ungerman
Britney Spears has given her paintings a purpose.
The 35-year-old singer, who recently showed off her artistic skills on Instagram, sold a painting she created to Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous host Robin Leach for $10,000 at a charity auction at Las Vegas’ Venetian Hotel on Monday for Vegas Cares, which is raising money to commission an art piece in memory of the victims of last month's tragic domestic terror attack in the Nevada city.
"I'm so proud to call Vegas my second home and I'm pleased to participate in this Vegas Cares show," Spears said in a video message, Vegas' WKLA reports. "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 Cares Memorial Fund. I appreciate your kindness and your generosity. I love you, Vegas."
