Look at this!
Charles Bird King worked to make sure that his painting looked like a cupboard that you might see in real life. In addition, King made each object in the painting a clue about the identity of the owner.
Think about it.
What do you think this collection of books and objects says about their owner? What about these objects gives you a hint? Look around your room and notice the objects that you have chosen to collect and keep. What do those objects say about you? Do you think if someone saw your room that they could guess what your personality is like?
Imagine who would have these items in their cupboard. Write a poem about the person who would have owned these items.
