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.

Awesome! I love her artwork. :)
So close to first…
Squeeeeee…this is awesome!!!!
I hope they somehow make these illustrations available for anyone – maybe in a calendar or something.
I wish I had the money to get one! :(
I hope they make them available too. Maybe if enough people complain, they will? LOL
It is fantastic that she has created these works for such a good cause. It must have taken a lot of effort on her part to create all of this art.
Needless to say, I do hope that we are able to view at least some of what she did. I certainly do enjoy the art she has conceived for the series.
I want to see them! I LOVE her work
I hope there will be a way that we can see them!
Oh wow, I think her art is fantastic! I hope they’ll make them available to the general public. . . maybe a postcard book? Just like JKR made Beedle public in an accessible way. . . :D
I hope we can see pictures!
Very cool… I love Mary GrandPre’s artwork! :)
hm the prices really aren’t that bad considering who they’re coming from. She really has a knack for pastels, they’re not very easy to use.
Oooh, yay! I’m so looking forward to this!
I wish I could go see them! I’m only like 6 hrs away, but my dad won’t let me go :P
At times like this I wish I have money….
