George Rodrigue has been a Louisiana institution for many years. I knew George when he began painting south Louisiana pastorals back in the 1970s. Then one day, on a whim, he painted his dog that had stayed by his sid3e in his studio for many years, but had recently passed away. For some reason, he painted the dog blue. And now, the Blue Dog is recognized worldwide and George’s paintings often command a six figure amount. George and I had dinner together with a number of old Louisiana friends down in the French Quarter in New Orleans last weekend. His is as energetic and vibrant as ever. And of course, the talk was about many more Blue dogs to come. Take a look below.
