W. Louis Jones
K.S.S. (06/12/2012)
I was a student of Mr. Jones' when I was a Studio Art major at Skidmore College in Saratoga, NY. He was one of my favorite professors and one of the classes I took with him centered on photo-realism. The room was at one time filled with giant paintings of exploded flattened out objects covered with rust (an exercise in surface reproduction -- mine was a giant railroad spike). And my favorite was when the room was filled with huge paintings reproducing ads and photos from magazines (mine was an ad for Soave Bolla from The New Yorker -- which turned out fabulously if I do say so myself ;-)). I have often wondered what happened to him and have looked for him online, just succeeding in finding a couple of his realistic nautilis paintings. I'd really like to see what he has been doing lately.

I met W, Louis Jones when I was a student of architecture at the University of Idaho. He was an art teacher for a couple of years there but left my fifth year to teach at Skidmore college at Saratoga, NY. When I moved to Connecticut, I went to visit Jones and his wife, He was very cordial and showed me his studio, introduced me to a few young ladies and invited me to his home. I was most impressed with his super realistic paintings and a full scale merry-go-round horse which was very beautifully carved, colorful and covered in gold leaf. He is only five years older than me so I would imagine he is still painting and must be quite successful. His bame came up today when discussing realists and he was my favorite.
