These charcoal drawings of Tango Dancers are on wood panel 18″ x 24″ and was drawn for a solo exhibition of Tango drawings at Gallery 381 in San Pedro CA. There were approximately 20 tango dancer charcoal drawings in the show – mostly on paper.. The fun part of doing this show was invitation to come down to San Pedro to take Tango lessons and photograph the tango dancers. I clopped round the dance floor as if I had horse shoes on – stepping on a number of toes.
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 didn’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,
