Machado Triptych







The Antonio Machado poem: Last Night As I Was Sleeping inspired these pieces:



the adapted poem is as follows:






Last night I dreamt that I had a beehive here inside my heart



and the golden bees were making white combs and sweet honey from my old failures.






Last night I dreamt that a fiery sun was giving light inside my heart.






sun because it gave light and brought tears to my eyes.






The true poem is longer, but these were the parts that I chose to depict in the triptych.

I love the connection between putting the honey in the bottle and bottling sweet memories or images.
