In My Yard (Finished Book)

I finished the second of three single-sheet, 8-page books which I plan to  submit it to the exhibition Ritual

The whole sheet of paper measures 11" x 15", so when it is folded each page measures 3.75" x 5.5". It is printed on 120 lb watercolor paper. Each image is printed from a carved wood block with oil-based black ink and then hand colored with watercolors (see below for what it looks like before being colored.) It took me 2 hours to print 2 books and another 2 hours to hand paint one of those books. 

In My Yard is also for sale on my Etsy store for $75. (Same price it will be at the exhibit.)
