The piece continues:

Reservations for the sketches, in black and white or color, will be taken during this weekend's Masters Art Festival at Payne Park in Sarasota. The sketches will be priced at $1,000 for black and white, $2,000 for color in a 9x12-inch size.

It’s so cool that she’s doing this for a great cause :)
Like other people have said, I really love her artwork & hope that sometime in the future these sketches will be available as a book or calendar or something :)

I think Leaky needs to start raising money so we can buy some of those sketches!
