KEY POINTS

  • Britney Spears shared a time-lapse video of herself painting a large mural Tuesday
  • The pop star said her abstract painting represented her feelings and showed "her true colors"
  • The post came after her new attorney filed a petition to remove her father, Jamie Spears, as her financial conservator

Britney Spears is embracing her artistic side amid her ongoing conservatorship battle.

On Tuesday, the pop star, 39, shared on Instagram a video of herself painting an abstract work of art on a giant expanse of paper spread out in her living room.

"As you guys know there's a lot of change going on in my life at the moment and today I was feeling overwhelmed so I went to Michael's and got white paper and paint," Spears wrote in the caption.

In the one-minute video, Spears -- who is wearing an oversized T-shirt and sneakers -- can be seen pouring green paint on the paper before scattering it with a paintbrush. She repeated it using other colors and different strokes.

"I wanted to see color and this is me messing around !!!" she explained. "Ok so I'm not a professional painter but I certainly felt like I was !!!"

Spears continued, "This is an expression of how I'm feeling at the moment … rebellious… colorful…bright…bold …spontaneous…magical…so obviously showing my true colors !!!! If you look closely you can see find a fish in there somewhere!!!"

Spears' followers praised her choice of activity and said they support her using art to express herself.

"Nothing wrong with some art therapy! Do what makes you happy," one fan commented, while a second user said, "What a wonderful and therapeutic way to deal with stress! Good for you mama."

"They teach this in counseling! She's expressing her feelings in a healthy way and that's awesome! We hear you!" another wrote.

"That's what art is about Brit! EXPRESS YOURSELF, DON'T REPRESS YOURSELF! You are pure art!" a fourth netizen added.

The video came after her new attorney, Mathew Rosengart, filed a petition to remove the singer's father, Jamie Spears, as her financial conservator.

In the court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Rosengart petitioned for Jamie to be replaced with Jason Rubin, a certified public accountant at Certified Strategies, to manage her estate.

"Ms. Spears respectfully submits that the Court should appoint her nominee; in that, it is an objectively intelligent preference to nominate a highly qualified, professional fiduciary in this circumstance," read the docs.

"Moreover, Ms. Spears respectfully submits that, given the Court's recognition at the July 14, 2021, hearing that Ms. Spears has sufficient capacity to choose her own legal counsel, she likewise has sufficient capacity to make this nomination," the papers continued.

Following Spears' emotional testimony in court in June, fans and fellow celebrities, including Ariel Winter, continue to publicly express support for the pop star and call for the end of her conservatorship.

"I think [Spears] is so smart, so capable. She should absolutely be free to live her life, be in control of her life, in control of herself. I think it's absurd that this is the situation that she has to be in," the "Modern Family" star told Entertainment Tonight.
