A young boy delights in the thrill of swinging vigorously under the colorful canopy of the autumn maple tree where his sister invited him to play. This painting, Front Yard Joy, tells of the lavish freedom granted children in the safety of their own front yard in town designed for active engagement with the outdoors.
In this custom framed oil painting on a cradled wood panel, the artist used all professional grade, archival quality materials and production methods. Front Yard Joy is sealed with a clear, UV protective finish for lasting impressions.
Front Yard Joy 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.
This program, Eleanor’s 2020 Vision, is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Arts, Culture and History and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
