A Concord woman struck gold in a thrift store after buying a $10 painting that's been valued at upwards of $20,000.

Beth Feeback found the painting at a Goodwill store near Greensboro and only wanted it for the canvas. She planned to paint over it with her own artwork.

“I paint kind of oddball stuff,” Feeback says. “I’ll like paint a cat head over Jesus’ face on some kind of dollar store iconography painting and then, you know, Jesus is a cat, which is kind of fun.”
