Rally at Dandelion Mill (Wysocki)

The 4th Annual Gathering of the United Root Beer Lovers of New England. (To someone like me who grew up in Old England, root beer is something of a mystery, but this certainly makes it look fun.)

Detail

The American artist Charles Wysocki (1928-2002) was born in Detroit, but spent almost all his working life on the West Coast of the USA, in Los Angeles, and in Lake Arrowhead where he settled, just to the east.

His rather charming primitive style is instantly recognisable: full of warm wit, but rigidly refusing to comply with any conventional "rules" of perspective.

* This puzzle has smaller pieces than the standard size.
