This amazing postcard comes from the Goodreads Postcard Exchange Group that I am into. Each month, we send a postcard to one person from the group, and the June theme was: Where do you usually read?

Thank you Manisha, for sending me this amazing postcard!

The Art Of Carl Larsson In A Postcard

postcard
Brita in the drawing room – painted by Carl Larsson

When the love for receiving postcard will combine with the love of art, this is what happens.

It makes my day!

For those that are not aware, Carl Larsson was a Swedish painter, mostlyย painting using oils,ย watercolors, andย frescoes.ย He considered his finest work to beย Midvinterblotย (Midwinter Sacrifice), a large painting now displayed inside theย Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts.

The postcard that I have received is called Brita in the Drawing Room.

I really love it and this that it is ahead of its time.

What do you think? Do you like it?

Postcard From Zurich – a Place of Joy

I remember my visit to Zurich, in February 2015, for a European Karate Championship.

I didn’t see an much of it as I truly wanted, but I got a little view of this wonderful city in a same condition like I see it on this postcard. And ahh, it brings me so many amazing memories from that time.
