Created on vintage kitchen cabinets from renovated kitchens here in Portland, Oregon and generously donated to me by the homeowners. I take the cabinets and sand them down, clean them up from their years of honorable work of storing plates and cooking pots and cans of beans, and give them a new life. I add handmade papers, bits of gold leaf, and make small embellishments with Sumi ink . I love this process and I love seeing the end results. I hope you will love it too.

August Morning by Albert Garcia

It's ripe, the melon

by our sink. Yellow,

bee-bitten, soft, it perfumes

the house too sweetly.

At five I wake, the air

mournful in its quiet.

My wife’s eyes swim calmly

under their lids, her mouth and jaw

relaxed, different.

What is happening in the silence

of this house? Curtains

hang heavily from their rods.

Ficus leaves tremble

at my footsteps. Yet

the colors outside are perfect–

orange geranium, blue lobelia.

I wander from room to room

like a man in a museum:

wife, children, books, flowers,

melon. Such still air. Soon

the mid-morning breeze will float in

like tepid water, then hot.

How do I start this day,

I who am unsure

of how my life has happened

or how to proceed

amid this warm and steady sweetness?
