Daler Rowney Acrylics on board 12″ × 16″
My inspiration came from this wonderful poem called A Small Description by Joel Smith who wrote this when he was 14 in 2002

It’s a step when you walk with your arms together…
It’s a hobby when you start walking with people you do and don’t know…
It’s a dance when you start walking with the music….
It’s an art when you get the meaning of it…
It’s a way of life once you understand it…
It’s a tango.
