Daniel W. Pinkham has been a principle force in the resurgence of plein air painting, leading by example that plein air painting is not only a career, but also a lifestyle. His art is a by-product of how he lives his life. Today his works are direct from nature, infused with a presence of mind…qualities felt more than thought. He attended Art Center College of Design from 1972-1974 after which he received a scholarship to apprentice for five years with Russian born artist, Sergei Bongart (1918-1985). Pinkham opened his own art school which operated from 1980-1985. To further his artistic training, he travelled throughout Europe studying masterworks in prominent museums. Immediately after returning from Europe, Pinkham focused his attention on plein air painting by travelling throughout the United States. Believing that it is important to be close to his source of inspiration, Pinkham travels often and paints a minimum of seven months a year. Intensely dedicated to painting on location, Pinkham formed the Plein Air Artists of California, and also became a founding member of the Plein Air Painters of America. The National Park Service chose Pinkham as the Artist in Residence at the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Most recently, Pinkham and his wife, Vicki, formed the Portuguese Bend Artist’s Colony, dedicated to preserving open space and natural habitat.

Daniel W. Pinkham is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America and is the Mentor Program Chairman and a Signature Member of the California Art Club where he also serves on the Board of Directors.
