Lois was the director of the now-gone Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts, for many years, having worked closely with the previous director, Henry Hensche. (Hensche took over the School from another legendary artist, Charles Hawthorne.) Lois, also the author of Painting the Impressionist Landscape, is well-known for her use of impressionistic techniques and has a national reputation as a plein air instructor. I've admired her work for many years. It wasn't until she taught a workshop at the Acadia Workshop Center in Maine that I was able to study with her. We have a mutual friend, Gail Ribas, who owns AWC, and we had some good times during that week.
Not too long ago, Lois moved from the Cape to Arizona. I was delighted to find out that she lives only a few hours from our winter home in Sedona!
