Art Showcase - Duende - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Hi I am Charlene Lanzel. I am an artist from New York City, and this is a painting I did titled Duende. I became inspired by the term Duende, which is sort of like the "it" factor or it is like a spirit that takes over when you see a live performance that is very beautiful--what makes you laugh or cry. So I became inspired to do this painting called Duende.
