Artist George Rodrigue spoke in detail about this particular artwork:
“Unlike the black bayous and dark trees of my early Cajun paintings, I use color here to reflect a modern Louisiana. In the art world, the use of color, especially flat, bright color, is modern, in the Pop Art vein. I contrast those colors with the dog, the only thing that is blended and painterly, making both the dog and overall composition more important. The alligator, like the landscape, is flat, because it too has been here for millions of years. The dog is part of today’s world, born a mere twenty years ago out of my head.”
