Daniel W. Pinkham: Intellectual Modern Impressionism
Before beginning to define the title of the article, I need to introduce you to my friend Dan Pinkham.
Dan like most children at a young age scribbled carelessly or meaninglessly on most any blank sheet of paper he was given; his mother, father and two considerably older siblings encouraged him at that point, certainly to keep him occupied.
Dan recalls a specific incident, which he feels was a defining experience, while visiting their next-door neighbor for his treats of Oreo cookies and milk; he was introduced to their houseguest, Sister Camille, a nun dressed in her habit seated at a painting easel. As usual, Dan had his drawing pad and pencils with him and proudly shared his images of the family dog and other concepts within the pages. Her response to his efforts was, of course, very encouraging.
