It can be tricky to use text in artwork but I decided to give it a try in this piece. It's titled "Approach", 34" square, Acrylic on canvas. In the text I'm describing some observations on how to approach someone you might not know very well or might have offended slightly. The figure on the right is moving awkwardly toward the second figure who appears not to know that someone is behind him.

I started writing this blog a year ago and have enjoyed articulating my process using words. The figures obscure some of the text, breaking up the flow of the reading. I like creating a little visual challenge.
