View from my window

I did this when I was 19. It was my view from my bedroom each morning. It was done a LONG time ago in ink (with color ink). Under the window is my dads old drafting table I used to draw on.  At this age I had yet to find my muse. I grew up in a 13 room 110 plus year old  Victorian styled home in the small town of Lyons , NY. The house was so large that it had a basketball hoop in the attic and my dad use to kid me about building a bowling ally in the cellar. All the trees in the neighborhood were huge and even older than the house. Lots of memories, good and bad but mostly good.

I think it's good to look at old work. It gives you some perspective.

Thank you for looking at mine. To see more please go to

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.
