In Portrait of My Past, Rodrigue allows the Blue Dog in the foreground of the canvas to reflect on the transformation from Tiffany to the Blue Dog. The spirit of Tiffany sits beneath the oak tree, a reflection of Rodrigue’s early style, as she once sat beneath the artist’s easel while he painted.
“Even as I painted the loup-garou, at times my mind drifted to Tiffany, until eventually I created a series of paintings less about a ghost story and more about my dog.” -G.R.
