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.
