On Holy Thursday we usually paint our eggs red in Greece! We start eating them on Easter. This tradition symbolizes the Christ's blood.
I was born on November 18th, 1998 and I am a girl from Greece :-) Thank you for your comments!
Great backstory on why the eggs are all red. I didn't know. It is almost worthy of a post to the "culture" category as well. Superb seeing once again. Love your work.

My grandma, who was an armenian from Istanbul, taught me that. She cooked the eggs with red onions skins and as a child I (and my sister) made drawings over them ! Thanks for the memories your nice picture bring back, Eleftheria* and have a sweet sunday ~ ~ ~

@peter: Thanks, Peter!
I like the idea that the red eggs represent drops of Christ's blood. Far more connected with the faith-based meaning of Easter than dying eggs in spring pastels. Or easter bunnies, no matter how cute. Happy Easter dear sister in Christ.

@Anouk: Thank you!
Magnificent! I like how you have used proportion here for your subject! By this I mean the size that you have given the eggs (your subject). Well done Eleftheria! The repeated (rhythm) in the color and shapes of the eggs draw further attention! Excellent!

@Craig: Thank you!
Beautiful. I've never seen such deep red in Easter Eggs before. We use dye and they usually look more pink than red.
