“God’s gift to Loïs Jones is a beautiful sense of color. Like a singer who always sings true, this well-trained painter—and she has studied under Philip Hale, Jonas Lie, and the académie Julian—shows true color harmony in her oils... (and) a sense of structure and design... It is all in the best sense of the word, happy art.”
