It looks more like faux impressionism at best. Judging from the photograph he 
seems to have used impasto a lot, but it's not an undiscovered masterpiece, and 
it doesn't really have the Socialist Realism of the WPA murals that you see in 
Post Offices and buildings of the omnipotent lords of DC.

I'd give about $10-25 for it.
