George "Blue Dog" Rodigue, American (1944 - 2013)
Cajun Artist George "Blue Dog"Rodrigue was from New Iberia, Louisiana, He was known for his Blue-Dog series, inspired by his long-deceased childhood pet, Tiffany, whom he poses with other animals and people.
Rodrigue had early art talent, and while ill for nearly a year, he used watercolors and crayons to pass the time and pave the way to his future. He studied at the University of Southwestern Louisiana and in Los Angeles at the Art Center College of Design. For awhile George Rodrique painted Abstract Expressionist works but then went back to painting that which reflected his own Cajun culture including folk tales and bayou and swamp landscapes.
We have buyers who wish to purchase Blue Dog original paintings and lithographs.
