How to paint Easter eggs?

I consider the testicles presented to me. Here crystal - gold, through it - all magic. Here - with the stretching fat worm: it has a black head, black eyes - beads and a uvula from scarlet sukonets. With tell-tales, with ducks, carved - bone... And here, porcelain - the father. A wonderful panoramka in it... Behind pink and blue florets of an immortelle and a move, behind a fragment of glass in a gold rim the picture seems in depth: snow-white Christ with a banner revived from the Coffin. The nurse told me that if to look for a fragment of glass, long - long, you will see the living angel. Tired of strict days, from bright fires and rings, I peer for a fragment of glass. Mreet in my opinion - also seems to me, in flowers, - live, neizjyasnimo - joyful, sacred... God?. Not to express in words. I press a small egg to a breast - and the lulling ringing swings me in a dream .
