Sunny Side of the Street

Acrylic on panel




12" x 12"


The bright palette of "Sunny Side of the Street" reflects the upbeat attitude of the song. An excerpt is below. The painting has a contemporary thin, white floater frame that brings the dimensions to 12 3/8" x 12 3/8" x 1 1/2" deep. The song was written by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields in 1930. Some say that Fats Waller was the composer, but he sold the rights to the song. It is a jazz standard and has been played and recorded by many bands and singers, most notably Louis Armstrong.

Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

Can't you hear the pitter-pat
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be complete
On the sunny side of the street
I used to walk in the shade with my blues on parade
But I'm not afraid, this rover's crossed over
