“El Duende” 54 × 36, Oil on Linen.
El duende is the spirit of evocation. It comes from inside as a physical/emotional response to music. It is what gives you chills, makes you smile or cry as a bodily reaction to an artistic performance that is particularly expressive.
This is a painting of the dancer, Deb Rubin, from the photography of Scott Belding, painted with permission from both Deb and Scott.
