the rattling of clogs or tap-dancing shoes, the tinkling of glasses. Saxophones

The varied shades of blue plays with depths, and the palette
of yellows captures light to create a muffled atmosphere where movement
only stops with each stroke of the paint brush.
It's up to you to bring back the rhythm !
