New! Original Oil Painting by Pat Cross.
In this 14” x 11” oil painting, a pair of mountain bikers arc over the crest of a rocky shear before plunging back on the trail that leads through the forest. These athletes not only hone their skills in this rugged sport, but also contribute greatly to keeping the trails clear, pausing to haul a fallen tree to the side.
In this small town designed by Eleanor Roosevelt, the Park includes up to 35 miles of biking and hiking trails, much to the delight of anyone who prefers to exercise and recreate outdoors.
Mountain Biking Rocks is painted on a cradled wood panel and 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. The wood panel sides and back are sealed with a handsome slate gray paint, making the artwork attractive from any angle when perched on an easel and displayed on a desk, credenza, counter or fireplace mantel.
Mountain Biking Rocks 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.
