Eggs from the Golden Goose

Painting real empty eggshells is a strange craft but I have been enchanted by it for a long time. I guess it all started -as with everything- in the early childhood, and the love I had for birds, feathers and eggs. A challenge also, as no-one that has never seen his meticulous work of many months being crashed by his own hands -accidentally of course- can understand how treacherous this craft really is.
As the years got by, I tried to be more focused and specific to the subject rather than the materials. But more than feeling satisfied for the work completed, I feel overwhelmed with ideas that stir before my eyes and linger, impatiently waiting.
