Rob Grice's Portrait of an Old Country Town is a programmatic work depicting images of an early American community. The beauty of the countryside, the work involved in taming the great outdoors, and a small town festival celebration are all pictorial elements of the piece. Accessible to bands of modest experience, sounds much harder than it is. An exceptionally nice work!
