Searching for three drawings from Poppy

I’m trying to track down a few original drawings from Poppy, by Avi, so that they can be rescanned for a possible foreign edition of the book. The drawings, above, were auctioned off in the late ‘90s at fundraising auctions for Horizon Institute for Homeless Children in Boston (now Horizons for Homeless Children). It's a long-shot to look for them, I know, but in the age of the internet I don’t dismiss the long shot. If you happen to own or know the owner of any of the pieces pictured here, I’d be grateful if you’d be in touch. I’d like to borrow the drawings only long enough for the scanning, and would be glad to cover costs associated with shipping and, if necessary, reframing. Thank you!
