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.
The climate and landscape of California has had a profound effect on the look of my Blue Dog paintings. The same creation that was once steeped in the somber hues of the Louisiana bayou has become inseparable from California sunshine. –G.R.
