My Wall Wednesday

This is a painting that I never get tired of looking at because it creates an excitement in me. Somehow, when I look at it, it takes me to Broadway in San Francisco and going to Jazz clubs. There were a few clubs there a long while back. The one I remember the best is Sugar Hill. It was always a weekend night. The streets were wet sometimes, and the neon lights would reflect on the street. The music would stir up the air around me and all would be a mini hurricane. We would stay in one place, move to another. Always we toook an air of excitement with us.
This is what this painting evokes in me.

I do not know the title. It was painted by W. Nielsen. It is oil on canvas. There is no date on the back. 22" x 26".

This painting is one of my favorites in your collection. The depth of the brick reds, the blue reds, the pulse! Wow!
