In a July 17 story, “Echoes from a previous story continue,” artists Phyllis Henson and Susan Howell were mentioned as having painted works similar to one done by William Morris.

If any readers inferred any wrongdoing on the part of Henson or Howell because of their inclusion in the article, that reading is totally incorrect. Both artists were given permission to use the same reference photograph and also had met the subject.

The article never made any statement implying wrongdoing and there was no belief by author Kevin Lee or Lagniappe’s editors that Henson or Howell did not create their own work or were involved in anything unethical.
