Dream to Reality

Lithographic drawing, two color. The drawing on the left is from a Polaroid  taken of my wife the night she found out she was pregnant with our first born child and the image on the right is from the first evening she spent with Steven after his birth. The background pattern is based on the design pattern of Steven's bedding.

About Neal McDannel

Influences: There are a few. I really Like Alice Neel and Alex Katz. Edward Hopper made work that touched me on an emotional level while Wayne Theibaud's landscapes are extremely aesthetically pleasing along with his masterful use of color. I would also like to acknowledge my family who has been a real inspiration and very supportive in the creative process.
