The Illustration Friday word of the week is new.

This vintage oil painting and a favorite poem by the Spanish poet, Antonio Machado, seemed like the perfect way to wrap up 2012 and welcome in a more hopeful New Year. Best wishes to you all, and thank you so much for your own inspiring art and wonderful posts, your blog visits here and your lovely comments this past year!

Last Night As I Was Sleeping

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a spring was breaking
out in my heart.
I said: Along which secret aqueduct,
Oh water, are you coming to me,
water of a new life
that I have never drunk?

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
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 as I was sleeping,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that a fiery sun was giving
light inside my heart.
It was fiery because I felt
warmth as from a hearth,
and sun because it gave light
and brought tears to my eyes.

Last night as I slept,
I dreamt—marvelous error!—
that it was God I had
here inside my heart.
