Default Text wrapping difficulity

I am attempting to wrap text around a graphic, an oval. On the "outside" of
the oval is a picture that ends on the ovals left hand side. I want the text
to follow the "inside" (or right hand side) of the oval. I have edited the
text boxes' wrap points, that did nothing. I have grouped the three objects
(picture, graphic & text box) and brought the graphic to the front. That
didn't work. The text always runs through (on top of) the graphic and the
picture, or goes away completely.

Is there a solution? Thanks.

Text will never wrap inside the oval. There is a workaround. In Autoshapes
select the curve line tool, draw a curve following the right side of your oval.
You can edit the points so it is about the same as the oval curve. Bring it to
the front. The text should follow the curve. You can give the line no color.
