In this original oil painting, a young family escapes the encroaching walls of their home to embark on a Sunday afternoon bicycle ride to the local Dairy Queen. Images of creamy vanilla, chocolate syrup and crunchy nuts swirl in their delicious anticipation. The family pooch looks giddy to go along for the ride, hopeful for a lick or two of sweet, sticky fingers.
Dairy Queen Sunday is one of a series of oil paintings by Pat Cross on the desirability and viability of living in this small town designed by Eleanor Roosevelt and how that plays out into our modern day.
In this oil painting, the artist used all professional grade, archival quality materials and production methods. The painting is sealed with a clear, UV protective finish for lasting impressions. It is mounted in a handmade solid wood frame with a cocoa colored finish that is wired and ready to hang in your home or office.
