JQuery, Can't get small animation to work right.

I have a small JQuery snippet where I want the Div,  #Bar to go to the end of the page.
The second animation is a picture and I want it to move with the bar and then disappear when it gets to the end.
It looks like a someone painting a straight line with a paint brush.
The straight line is the Div, #Bar, and the Brush is the #Pic.
It will run, but I can't get the brush to stop at the end, instead it bounces back to the beginning.
How do I get this to work?
$(document).ready(function() {
         $("#Bar").animate({
             width: "95%"
         }, 5000, function() {
             $("#pic").animate({
                 marginLeft: '+=0px'
             }, 5000);
         });
     });

maybe this is what you are looking for:
$(document).ready(function() {
         $("#Bar").animate({
             width: "95%"
         }, 5000, function() {
             $("#pic").animate({
                 marginLeft: '95%'
             }, 5000);
         });
     });

However, I can't know for sure because you haven't posted the CSS properties of both these elements.

Sorry I didn't post the other parts.  I tried your suggestion, but it did the same thing.

Thanks for your help,

<div style="width:15px; display: block;" class="divbackcolorredirect" id="Bar">
    <span id="Span1" style="border:none; color:White;  font-size:1.2em; font-weight:bold; padding-left:8px;">

    </span>
</div>
<div class="divbackcolorbrushredirect" id="pic">
    <img id="Img2" alt="Tint Brush" src="/images2020/RedirectTintBrush.png" height="150" width="164" enableviewstate="false" />
</div>

#CSS

 .divbackcolorredirect
{
   float:left;
   height:58px;

this will do the trick:
$(document).ready(function() {
         $("#Bar").animate({
             width: "95%"
         }, 5000, function() {
             $("#pic").animate({
                 marginLeft: '95%'
             }, 0);
         });
     });

It's the same I posted before, BUT with 0 instead of 5000 in the duration...
It works!

It doesn't work for me.  The brush still bounces back to where it started.

Thanks

Sorry, my fault... It worked!
I had to change 95% to 85%.

Thanks for your help!
