Lindsay Lohan -- The ART Of The House Arrest

5/27/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan plans to spend her stint under house arrest doing lots of painting ... reading ... and relaxing at her townhouse by the beach -- exactly the kind of hard time the judge intended.

Sources close to the actress tell us ... Lohan is looking at her confinement as a "time to relax, focus on her recovery and figure out her new game plan for her life and career."

Before she started to serve her time -- Lohan stocked up on art canvases so she can paint to release the stress.

We're told Lohan also has a stack of scripts she intends to read -- so she can decide on her next project.

Lohan is confident she will be released from house arrest before her birthday on July 2nd -- and we're told she's already making plans for a sober celebration. 

No wonder she was smiling yesterday.

"decide on her next project"; as if the world were her oyster and producers are knocking her door down.
Scribble away, just please don't decide to write any music.

Let's hope there's a treadmill at her pad. Those thighs and tummy were looking a little thick when she was in Miami last weekend. Maybe she's angling for a shot on "Biggest Loser".

Lindsay Lohan: How I blew $30 million

OCTOBER 28, 2010, 1:46 PM ALICIA NEIL WITH BUREAU REPORTS

WHOMAGAZINE

Lohan has squandered her millions on clothes, rehab and partying

Once the highest-earning actress of her generation with a net worth of $30 million, the Mean Girls actress, 24, who was ordered back to three months of rehab on Oct. 22, has been living beyond her means for the past three years — squandering her fortune on, among other things, hotel bills, rehab costs and a carousel of legal fees.

“She indicates she cannot afford to continue to pay for the treatment program and she needs to work,” says Lohan’s probation report, with Forbes magazine reporting in 2007 the actress had earned only $3.5 million that year.

In that year of spending dangerously, Lohan reportedly blew $7.5 million, including $1 million on her hotel bill for LA’s Chateau Marmont (she resided there in 2005-06), $350,000 on luxury cars, another million on clothes, $70,000 on tanning and hairstyling and over $500,000 on partying.

“I was 18, 19, with a ton of money,” Lohan told October’s Vanity Fair, “and no-one really here to tell me that I couldn’t do certain things … And I see where that’s gotten me now, and I don’t like it.”

With her estimated net worth for 2010 a paltry $105,000, in September Lohan hired Britney Spears’ financial manager, Lou Taylor, to help sort out her mess.

But according to Dr Lee Sadja, who dealt with Lohan during her stay at the Betty Ford Clinic, the actress needs to regain her health before she can improve her bank balance. “There was some denial regarding her drug addiction,” he wrote in her probation report. “[Lohan] needs to continue to work on her issues in order to save her life.”

winning?? she's worth 100K, bankrupt. She couldn't even withdraw cash from an ATM on three separate cards. Then of course blamed the store that something was wrong with their ATM. Never Lindsay's fault. She such a loser, come on now.

What a load of crap. I'm still laughing at "stack of scripts" Porn scripts maybe but not legit movies that will get her that Oscar she so desperately wants.

She won't make it without incident until July 2nd. She always finds a way to f things up. Trust.

The world is sick of you Lindsay, so quit wasting our oxygen and go straight to hell, please.

Lindsay Lohan quotes. Risks include hijacking suv's and ripping jewels, Oscar by 30, yep, and one day she hates children and now in CS she loves working with them. What a winner.

“Life is full of risks anyway, why not take them?”

I want to get married before I'm 30. And I'd like to win an Oscar before then.

I'm not that girl from Freaky Friday any more! I'm a real adult. In fact, I hate children! I hate them all!

When the rambunctious Kyle and Jackie O asked her how serving her community was going, Lohan replied: "I'm enjoying it. I'm working in the Downtown Women's Shelter, and I think the second part I'm going to be working with kids, which I really like."
