“In The Blue Seaside”

on April 10, 2012

This absolutely stunning card comes from a direct swap with a Russian postcrosser Alex, who works in an art museum. He tells me the picture is called “In The Blue Seaside” and is by A. Rylov. I really love the painting, and I can’t help but wonder if the seven swans depicted are to do with local folklore in Russia, as we have in British myths and legends. Alex also tells me spring is finally on its way in Russia, which I bet he’s very glad about!
