Over the years, George Rodrigue found himself frequently using some of the same motifs in his paintings and silkscreens. Flowers, hearts, swirls, eyes, candles…all were recurring designs found throughout his work, which changed In this late work, George Rodrigue renders the oak tree with the same rules he set for himself in the early 1970s — with hard edges and dissected at the top, so that the sky is small and defined by the irregular shapes formed by the branches.
The Blue Dog stands as a focal point, reminiscent of the artist’s early loup-garou paintings, but here the Blue Dog is not within a dark and eery landscape, rather appears to glow beneath the bright moon, perhaps a bit “moonstruck” and optimistic for a brighter tomorrow.
