George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944-2013), "Angel on My Shoulder", 1997, acrylic on canvas, signed lower right, titled on label on reverse of frame, 36 in. x 82 in., framed. Provenance: Rodrigue Studio, Carmel, CA. Ill.: Rodrigue, George. Blue Dog Speaks. New York: Sterling, 2008, pp. 384-85; Rodrigue, George. Blue Dog Man. New York: Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 1999, pp. 90-91. “When I first decided to paint Cajun landscapes, I knew that light would play a unique role in my work. In Louisiana, the light is always distant, obscured by a low sky and the moss-draped branches of the oak trees. In my recent paintings, however, I’ve manipulated my old “rules” in order to reflect new moods and new environments. My Louisiana is not dark these days. Indeed, it is full of color and light. In ‘Angel on My Shoulder,’ Blue Dog’s bad counterpart – always in red – sits off to one side; on the other side is the light of artistic freedom, emanating from the very same oak tree that once obscured it.” – George Rodrigue
