McDaniel Barn, Shady NY

McDaniel Barn
12" x 16"
Oil on board

 This beautiful road and barn are located in Shady NY on McDaniel Rd.  Of course, in real life, the road is paved and much wider. I wanted to portray it the way it was back in the day. My sister-in-law's family had a boarding house just beyond.  I painted this landscape while taking a class with Paul Abrams. 


  1. I don't know if you still read this but my family owned that barn & I spent my summers there until about 1976

  2. Hi! Is that right? Lucky you! What a beautiful old farm. My sister-in-law's birth mother was Ester McDaniel Wilson. I visited their old boarding house a few times in the 80s. You must have known Linda Wilson? She is my s.i.l.'s sister.
