“I worked on this book for four years,” explains Wendy Rodrigue. “It’s a project George encouraged from the beginning, and it’s full of his quotes and our stories, including the history behind many of his best-known Cajun and Blue Dog paintings, as well as his recollections of New Iberia, art school, and his early years as a professional artist in Lafayette. The book’s design is George’s alone. He chose the cover, size, interior images and layout. We looked forward to sharing it with Lafayette together, and I’m grateful to the University Art Museum and UL Press for giving me the opportunity today.”
