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.

This is great. I always love her work and like someone else said before pastels are tough to work with. I really hope we at least get to see pics of these or something. I have the same flying car print from COS as Bookworm_Weasley does as well as the polyjuice one and they are both so beautiful to look at.

I saw one of the originals. It was huge. Maybe 12×18. It was of Harry looking into the Mirror with his parents really misty in the background. I think it was the same as the 10th anniversary cover. It was an awesome picture. The silent auction bidding started at $5,000!! Way too pricey for me… but it was a beautiful thing to see. Also came with paperwork.. you can’t sell it or reproduce it.. but it did sell…for a good cause…
