Hidden Treasure Right Under Everyone’s Noses

Carole Kim is Director of Publications at Duane Gomer Education.

Her mother-in-law recently passed away. Carole organized a large house full of many priced objects to be ready for an Estate sale in the beautiful city of Wildomar.

One item was a painting, actually a large framed painting, hanging on the wall of the living room. She priced it at a grand price of $5.00. Being a successful Real Estate Broker, she was going to be ready to accept an offer of $3-4.

No offer came. The painting was wrapped up and transported to her home.

One Night, She And Her Husband, Michael, Decided To Take A Closer Look

On the back was some information and on the front was an autograph.

The pastel on paper was painted by R.C. Gorman of Taos, N.M.

A Google search stated that he was a well-known painter, known as the Picasso of the Navajo Nation. The painting was autographed as stated before and in good condition,.

Obviously, they quickly took their treasure to a reputable appraiser. $2,500-$3,000.

There was a good turnout for the auction, and everyone missed this one. The painting sure looks GREAT now.
