Some of Neal’s favorite themes to include in his artwork are sports and musical groups. He often brings up The Eagles, both as the sports team and the popular rock group, as subjects to paint. Neal’s work almost always conveys a sense of motion and urgency. Neither paint nor canvas intimidates Neal as he will attempt any subject matter when desired. Red is his preferred color and outside of class he participates in baseball and swim competitions, and has won several medals as a participant in the Special Olympics.
