A blue-grey day is pictured in "Colorado's Late October". Mrs. Jones, the artist, perhaps was influenced by her blue-Monday morning. Anna Mae (Buck) Jones (Mrs. Harold S.) was born in Kempton, Ind. On Dec. 16, 1915 and moved to Indianapolis six months later. She studied art at Shortridge High School for four years and won a Saturday Scholarship at John Herron Institute for one winter. Mrs. Jones is a member of Indianapolis Art League and has studied with many excellent instructors.
She has been exhibiting professionally since 1959 and has her works in many collections, including Tri Kappa's and Indiana Memorial Union '68. She has won many prizes in competitions; at Hoosier Salon, Indiana Artists Club, Indiana State Fair and others throughout the Midwest. In 1969, her work was written up in the French magazines "La Revue Moderne des Arts et de la Vie".
Mrs. Jones and her dentist husband live in Indianapolis. They have two sons. In the past few years she has been working in oils, polymers, prints, and casein, as well as watercolors."
