Artist George Rodrigue (1944 - 2013)

Known best for his famous Loup-Garou "Blue Dog" Albany Woodworks fondly remembers first seeing the works of artist George Rodrigue in "Talk About Good II: Le Livre de Cuisine des Acadians" cookbook published in 1979. 

Haunting and eerily beautiful, his early paintings provide a deep understanding of life in the swamps and bayous of rural Louisiana. 

He will be missed. #bluedog #georgerodrigue
