Artist, Hazel O’Rear Reeves was very excited to have her painting “Interrogation” accepted in this show. Hazel born into a family whose roots go back to Kentucky in the 1700’s. She moved to Oregon in 1988, and began her painting career, after retirement, in 2007. Formally an Interior Designer who worked for both the state of Oregon and the U.S. government, Hazel knows that those years of training were the genesis for her desire to become an artist. I’ve also been painting in watercolor for several years. I am now painting watercolor portraits.
