Drawing Art Tango Dancers Charcoal on Wood drawing


I think these Tango dancers qualify as sports images as they show action and movement.Tango Dancing seems like a sport to me. t. I prefer this kind of contact sport.   They are charcoal on wood panel 18" x 24" and was drawn for a solo exhibition of Tango drawing at Gallery 381 in San Pedro CA.  There were approximately 20 tango dancers charcoal drawings in the show.

When I was in high school I certainly had the ability to play a sport for the school. There were two reasons why I did not play an organized sport.  One of the main reasons I did not play sports was that I did not like the body contact with other guys.  Although a very good athlete I was not into that whole male bonding, jock, locker room kind of thing that  athletes had going.  I certainly had more interest in body contact with girls and preferred to be up in the stands next to my girlfriend.  I had no interest in being down on the football field piling onto the top of other guys or on a basketball court banging into other guys.  If I was going to be in the gym I preferred dancing with a girl in my arms. If I was going to be on top of someone it certainly was not going to be a group of guys. My interest was more towards being on top of my girlfriend, That just seemed to make more sense to me. 

And the second reason I didn't play high school sports was that my grades didn't allow for it.  One had to have a C average.  I din't even have a D average.  To give you an idea of how bad a student I was - our high school class had eight-hundred-and-thirty-seven students in it.  I was ranked eight-hundred-and-thirty-five. There were eight-hundred-and-thirty-four students that had better grades than me.   There were only two students that had worse grades than me - and those two were by friends.   Good friends.  I didn't make the cut.  I didn't graduate.
