Cabin "fever"--Saturday scenery

"Cabin fever"--today's watercolor, 5' by 7"
"Cabin fever" doubles up in February. Though the winter is mild, we're still pretty much stuck inside--inside routine, inside the same scenery, inside the same walls, day in and day out.
I'm ready for the back roads, the mountains, the wide open spaces, and a different kind of cabin, a real one, where solitude and quiet open you up to dreams and memories and adventures with people and places, free from the demands and confines of business and urban dwelling. 
That's my cabin "fever," appropriate for some Saturday scenery and watercolor.
