A cabin kind of day


"Mountain Sanctuary," 5 x 7 watercolor card, 80 lb. stock

Beware looking at maps on days like this. When I feel "cooped up," even if I can get out of the house, these days of pandemic give me "cabin fever."

But that cabin fever feeds my imagination for another kind of cabin fever , one I've written and painted about many times.

I long for being able to travel, anywhere these days, especially after viewing a map of Italy,  but I'd settle for a cabin in the West. 

It's a cabin kind of day. So today, suffering from double cabin fever, thinking about the travels of our years and age, here's a watercolor card for a friend.
