Two finely executed pencil drawings, one titled "Mount Hood", the other of a mounted cowboy rounding up calves. They are essentially unframed, currently just protected. Both measure roughly 5" by 7 3/4"; the Oregon scene has an uneven top margin area, and both open up, almost as if they were intended to be greeting cards, but there are no messages inside. Parsons was born in New York's Greenwich Village. He served in World War I, was athletic, a businessman, and flier. Several "how to" art books in conjunction with Walter Foster spread his name at mid century. He had exhibitions at the Laguna Beach (CA) Art Gallery, as well as in Dallas, New York, and Tokyo. Landscapes of the California desert, and floral still life pieces, mark his work.
