Rodrigue faced a multitude of decisions beyond the style and placement in his Blue Dog paintings. To him every painting was different; the slightest change in color or placement shifted the choices again, so that each painting became an artistic puzzle to be solved.
Central to these decisions for example were the eyes. Rodrigue explained: Without variation in shape, one would think these round saucer eyes would cause a static expression. But this is not the case. The other element’s in the dog’s face become important. In changing those elements, even slightly, in relationship to each other, the dog’s expression varies.
