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.

I hope all of us impoverished fans will at least be able to see the sketches, even if we can’t buy them.

This is gonna be a great benefit! There are so many art collectors and Potter Fans, who can afford this, I hope they take advantage of it. Does anyone know if they can be purchasd, by mail?

Some reason (probably really wrong) that with her interview on MC she realized Harry still has more!
