Donated Painting Fetches $165,000
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Somewhere in America, a charitable donor is either very satisfied or very sad. The anonymous person dropped off a painting at Goodwill. The charity in Portland, Oregon, discovered that it was a watercolor from 1923. It was painted by the American impressionist Frank Weston and they've now sold it for more than $165,000. A Goodwill spokesman says they have no idea if the donor knows that the painting was really that valuable.
