Yep, definitely nepotism, but I wanted to let "my world" know about the new blog started by my nephew Erik's wife, Meadow. Both Erik and Meadow are art teachers at Watts Atelier in the beach community of Encinitas, California -- both also freelance. Meadow actually makes the period costumes for her paintings...her first blog posting is about how she is making a regency bonnet for a client...click here to check it out!. Click here to see some of her paintings. And, if you're missing Halloween, check out Erik's blog and his website (not for the faint of heart!). Yes, I suppose my posting these links on my blog will be considered a "conflict of interest"...no resolution needed, however.
