2004, 48” x 60”, acrylic on specially-prepared canvas
Inspired by Fire and Wind
One of A.D.’s most renowned creations, BACKDRAFT is bold and powerful, yet elegant. Fire and wind mixed with powerful and beautiful forces inspired this epic painting – the artist’s first painting featuring model Lynsey, who A.D. has gone on to paint several times on both canvas and metal. She is featured just slightly larger than life-size in this original artwork.
