Economic times are tough for tens of millions of Americans, and who better to step in and lend a helping hand to those in need than Jamie Spears (Well he needs to start selling Britney's things just to support his payroll.) At Jamie's direction, an oil portrait of struggling singer Britney Spears is being auctioned to raise money for the non-profit Promises Foundation. The charity provides assistance for low-income mothers and their children.
The 5-by-4-foot oil painting was created by artist Daniel Maltzman. The star herself has autographed the artwork, which depicts Britney Spears topless in a bikini bottom with her eyes closed and her arms crossing her chest. The painting is being auctioned on eBay with a starting bid of $10,000. The winner will receive an ownership letter from Spears' father Jaime.
