Used To Paint Houses
Meet Joe Jones, 29-year-old St. Louisan, who quit painting houses to make a name for himself in oil and canvas. Self-taught, he has two pictures in New York Museums; has won government assignments, and once was given a Guggenheim Fellowship to do a "Dust Bowl" series. Jones says he is an inactive communist. His works are termed earthy because, he says, "I like to think of things as being round and square, hot and cold, black and white." Associated Press Photo
