Mixed media on small canvas.
This post-card size canvas was inspired by our class letter project on James Wright. On the reverse side of the card R. J. writes:
I knew it is a little hard to read but I was excited to find a connection between “A blessing” by Wright and this trading card illustration by Lockwood. –R.J.
Suddenly I realize / That if I stepped out of my body I would break / into Blossom.

In this Illustrated letter, R. J. Ingram, a student at Bowling Green State University, wonders about the origin of something I read at AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) in Chicago. I had read from a work of fiction by Philip F. O’Connor, as part of his memorial. Here, R. J. mistakingly refers to the work as a poem. –TW
