Chrysotomontum 2005

US-783106

Just a fun postcard I just sent via Postcrossing today. This is US-783106 sent to Ignorancee_ in Poland. This comes from the Rex Ray postcard book by Chronicle Books. I'm not fond of all of his works, but this is one of my favorites, titled Chrysotomontum 2005. It's oil, acrylic, and mixed media on linen. The Rex Ray postcards are oversized - meaning they require full first-class postage instead of postcard postage if sent in the USA - but it's all the same, postage-wise, sent internationally. They are matte, uncoated paper stock on the back, which is great for fountain pens or any kind of pens. Plenty of room for writing.
