The second picture Donna finds in Vincent’s sketchbook is one of him as a child playing the mandolin. She observes that his stance with one foot in front of the other somehow reveals his unassuming, humble nature, and marvels at how he was able to create complex emotion with simple lines. “With two black dots for eyes and a couple of lines for a mouth, he was able to convey his childlike innocence and spirit.” She recalls the time (in Chapter Five) that they drove to the music store in his big, old Chevy truck so he could get a new mandolin, and how happy he was once they got back to his apartment, just to sit and play it.
