When Cajun artist George Rodrigue began his series of "Blue Dog" paintings in 1984, he had no idea that they would consume the greater part of his life for over two decades and that the mysterious 'Blue Dog' - inspired by his studio dog-turned-model, Tiffany and the Cajun loup-garou (were-wolf) folk legend - would become a wildly popular international icon. Rodrigue reveals how an idea that originated in childhood tales has now grown far beyond; his Blue Dogs have moved into formerly uncharted territory and now express larger concepts about contemporary life.Rodrigue uses "Blue Dog" painting titles to provide insight - whether humorous or nostalgic or sad - into the human condition. His newer titles - such as "Right Place Wrong Time" and "Tiffany Remembers the '70s'" - along with other, more abstract ones such as 'All by Myself with My Happiness' capture this shift in style and content. But most of all, there are the magnificently displayed paintings themselves. Even though the definitive answers to the meanings of the paintings may remain a mystery, the titles provide a clue.
