About "Dawn on the Mexican Coast"
This is an early painting of mine. I did it when I was studying with my mentor, Milford Zornes in 1982. He and I got up before dawn every morning to go catch the sunrise. Occasionally there was another student along, but mostly not and I had wonderful one-on-one time with Mr. Zornes.
If you are familiar with the work of Zornes you will note that I was trying hard to “paint like him”. That is the natural evolution of a student – you try to paint like the master – you fail miserably – you give up and begin developing your own “style”. He taught me to look for simple shapes and to not fuss around with the sky, among other things. I was so fortunate to have met him just when I was ready to learn. Eventually I served as his assistant and got to see a lot of world with him on 40 plus workshops.
Notice that the signature is Sheila Boylan Parsons. Later Zornes told me that was too long, so I shortened it to Sheila B Parsons, then Sheila Parsons, and now SParsons at his suggestion. I said, “but there are a lot of SParsons out there”. He responded, “Yes, but only one who is a “killer” painter. You got to love that man!
