Cabin fever, watercolor

"Prairie home, " today's work--9" by 12," 140-pound d'Arches paper
Cooped up by winter cold and lack of travel. Spurred by looking at maps, which are so seductive to the imagination, and by thinking about the miles on the car, and on me--oh for the wide-open spaces.

  1. I wish I was in that prairie home having a cup of tea on this cold blustery evening. It looks so warm and inviting. The sky is a wonder. I love the composition.
