A Denver woman who found a painting in a dumpster brought in some big bucks at an auction.

The painting sold for $103 thousand during at Sotheby's in New York city yesterday. Tammy bullock found the painting in a dumpster about 10 years ago. The sale price was well above estimated price of $70 to 90 thousand .

"They also did clean the painting it because it was pretty dirty. So they cleaned it and made it look beautiful. So I'm guesstimating that around $65–70 thousand will be my portion." Says Bullock

Bullock took her painting to worthpoint.com to see what it was worth and that's when she found out what she really had on her hands.
