This was a very touching scene that I witnessed on Broadway Street in downtown Sacramento. Sadly, the people pictured were down on their luck, quite possibly homeless. The gentleman was dancing for his lady friend, who admires his moves. I wanted to get a painting of him dancing and in the process created a dynamist tribute that I immediately thought of as “The Octopus of Broadway” — although perhaps it should be titled “The Dance.”
