It is with great sadness that we accept the resignation of Betty Cheek our vice-president for the Pastel Society of Oregon. I believe that Betty has been in that office for over 30 years and has been the right hand person and a good ear for Lora Block. I thought that it was appropriate to show some of her paintings. Betty always painted what was around her and these paintings show that. Please enjoy them as we have learned so much from this talented, dedicated artist and friend.
