Rodrigue’s Swirling Vision: The Sun, Cosmos, and Hurricanes
George Rodrigue (1944-2013) returned to the swirl often throughout his career. It first appeared in his landscapes and Cajun series paintings as a light in the distance, symbolizing hope and a brighter tomorrow. Later it evolved into Hurricanes and the Cosmos, as the birth of creativity, and as a suspension of reality —a symbol of the mysterious, mystical, and spiritual.

Rodrigue Gallery Selections
A special selection of available original works
George Rodrigue (1944-2013) brought his Louisiana inspired art to Carmel-by-the-Sea in 1992 when he opened his first location known as Galerie Blue Dog. In 2000, Rodrigue and his wife Wendy made a home in the nearby hills. The quiet refuge enabled the artist to paint hundreds of paintings in his spacious, sun-drenched studio. While his roots remained in Louisiana, Carmel always held a special place in his heart.
