The famous Maud Lewis painting that was found in a New Hamburg thrift store has been sold.

The Mennonite Central Committee says the successful online auction drew a bidder willing to pay $45,000 for the artwork. When the artwork was first put up for auction, the bidding had to start over due to a fake bidder.

The proceeds from the auction will go towards the Mennonite Central Committee Relief and peace work around the world.

The painting, which features a classic Nova Scotia landscape, has been the talk of the country for the past two months.
