Portrait of Dave Backus (2016). Oil on canvas (13x17in).

My colleague and friend David “Dave” K Backus died on June 12, 2016. As part of a series of events to commemorate his life and legacy, today we will dedicate a conference room in his honor. I painted this portrait for the occasion, based on one of the few photographs I was able to find (he was not wearing his NYU tee-shirt in the photo, that’s something I added).
