George Rodrigue, Dead

It's a big day for obits at TYOMP.

George Rodrigue was a Louisiana bayou painter who created the famous Blue Dog paintings and made a nice chunk of money doing so.  While not exactly my dish of tea, I say God bless the man.  Who doesn't like a chunk of money?

He didn't always paint blue dogs, though.  This, which I like, is one of his early works ...

Speaks nicely to that Louisiana experience.
